Ridgefield Half Marathon 2013

Well we did it, we ran another half marathon!!

ridgefield

My dad and I ran the Ridgefield Pamby Half Marathon has actually ran this half 4 times now!

The race started at 8:30am, perfect time for a start if you ask me.

The weather was in the 60s and there was a consistent spritz happening most of the race. Despite the drizzle it was pretty humid and about 2 miles in I ditched the long sleeve I was wearing.

Fall has certainly hit New England and the trees were very colorful and already loosing leaves.

The course was nice, it was relatively flat with rolling hills, but the hills were never anything too crazy which was much appreciated after last weekend.

I felt pretty strong and fast for the first 3 miles, my times slipped a bit for miles 4 and 5. My IT Band started to bother me around mile 6 which is rare cause it usually holds out until mile 10. Other then that the race was pretty uneventful. It was nice, I wanted to be faster (I had a significant time drop in mind) then last weekend but I eventually realized it was a lofty goal and just settled on wanting to finish at or below my time from last week.

I came in at 1:46:23 (very close to last weeks time of 1:46:28) I came in 8th in my age group and 31st overall. I also passed my goal of running 2 half marathons a year! I am not signed up for anymore races in 2013, but who knows!

How was your weekend?
