I thought it was interesting to look at my garmin data from the race this weekend…

  • Mile 1 – 9:30
  • Mile 2 – 9:26
  • Mile 3 – 8:58 (wow!)
  • Mile 4 – 9:38
  • Mile 5 – 9:55
  • Mile 6 – 9:43 (Dupont Circle hill – pretty darn good!)
  • Mile 7 – 10:12(the hill continues)
  • Mile 8 – 10:11 (cresting the hill)
  • Mile 9 – 9:12
  • Mile 10 – 10:15
  • Mile 11 – 12:12 (hello, port-a-potty that I didn’t actually use – grrrrr)
  • Mile 12 – 9:52
  • Mile 13 – 11:05 (and there’s the start of the foot problem)
  • Mile 14 – 10:11
  • Mile 15 – 10:28
  • Mile 16 – 11:58
  • Mile 17 – 15:10 (ouch)
  • Mile 18 – 11:18 (where I saw the 4:25 pace group pass me and started to have delusions of a 4:30ish still being possible)
  • Mile 19 – 10:25
  • Mile 20 – 14:06 (back to reality)
  • Mile 21 – 13:53
  • Mile 22 – 13:45
  • Mile 23 – 14:27
  • Mile 24 – 17:15 (The lowest point.  Stupid foot)
  • Mile 25 – 12:37 (I.WILL.MAKE.SUB.5.)
  • Mile 26 – 9:40 (I.WILL.MAKE.SUB.5.)
  • Last .48 (my garmin was a little over) – 10:05

A very interesting day.  I was really pretty consistent during the first half.  But the second half was all over the place!
