New Bedford splits..

So after reading lots of race reports from New Bedford (mostly from people MUCH faster than me), I don't feel much like writing my normal in-depth, vulgar, brutally honest race report.

Instead, here are my splits from this awesome race, followed by the elevation from Garmin.

Mile 1 6:21
Mile 2 6:33
Mile 3 6:32
Mile 4 6:35 (slowest)
Mile 5 6:19
Mile 6 6:25
Mile 7 6:23
Mile 8 6:30
Mile 9 6:29
Mile 10 6:22
Mile 11 6:23
Mile 12 6:14
Mile 13 6:13 (fastest)
0.18 mi 1:02.67

Ok, obviously I had too much left in the tank... and should have ran a bit less conservative in the middle few miles... but eh whatever.. this is only my 2nd half marathon ever, but damn I love racing this distance!

Oh, and just so you know... I'll be running this again next year, and I will go 1:19 or under...


  1. Dude, don't worry about leaving a little in the tank in a HM 4 weeks out from a marathon. That is the perfect hard training effort for someone ready to run under 3 hours. I'm impressed with your last two miles. That tells me you were pretty comfortable the whole way. This should be a great confidence builder!

  2. Thanks dude, I'll be a ton more confident after our 20 on Saturday!
