Indy Marathon - 8:30 am start - 45 degress, extremely windy - seemed like about 30 to 40mph headwinds at times.  Course was fairly hilly as well.  Overall a good result, but went out too fast and really crashed at the end.  Think I ran way long again...

6:13, 6:46, 7:15, 6:50, 6:35, 6:43, 6:50, 6:40, 7:00, 7:00, 7:10, 7:00, 6:51

First half in 1:29:41 (ties PR! :()

6:53, 7:15, 7:05, 7:10, 7:31, 7:38, 7:31, 7:44, 7:50, 7:45, 8:22, 8:50, 9:51, 2:54 for last 0.318 mi. - my watch also says that my distance was 26.38 miles!

I'm thinking 3:04:xx on November 5 in downtown Indy - its really flat, hopefully no wind :)

5k in Columbus, IN - Pretty cool that there was 2 x 5ks in my town over the weekend.  

Great weather for the end of October here - it was 55 degrees and sunny for the race at 2pm.

Fairly decent run - probably too fast for the first mile, though:

5:42, 6:02, 6:15, 0:44

3.1 - 18:43

 

PS

Sasha - When I try to publish this entry its giving me an error message about entering a non-standard distance.  Had to check the non-standard toggle to get it to publish
