We all wore Garmin Forerunner 305s, but I managed to screw up the data on mine badly by not turning it off correctly at the finish line. Nevertheless, here (below) are some CHARTS!
The course satellite map is below in solid blue - out and back along a paved rail-trail. They slightly altered the course this year which cut out some hills and made it a little faster. That's the Severn River just south and parallel to the race course, and part of Annapolis, Maryland toward the southern end of the map.
I messed up the Garmin data a bit by hitting the lap counter wrong and not stopping it, but the data on the first few miles don't look like we started quite as fast as the chart above suggests, but we probably did go out a few notches too fast.
So I did my best, despite some alarmingly high heart rates toward the end of the race! That was definitely the best that I could do today! So I believe that my new half marathon PR time won't be soon broken!
THANKS AGAIN for a great race and excellent companionship today, guys! Let's do it again some time - but not too soon! I'm whupped!
