Great time with Nathan, Heidi, and then an Oliver appearance after the race.&nbsp; Heidi almost Pred in the Half, and Nathan suffered&nbsp;through the Full like me.&nbsp; :)&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p>Went pretty well for the first 15 miles for me before it went south: 6:50, 49,47, 54, 44, 46, 51, 48, 45, 43, 45, 48, 38, 45, 44 - Hung on to the lead females up through this point.&nbsp; They held strong and ran 2:55, and 3:00 respectively.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>I let them go shortly before the airport section.&nbsp; And then my day was not as fun: 7:14, 7:19, 7:33, 7:59, 7:49, 8:04, 8:12, 8;20 8:32, 8:34, 8:32, 4:34 for 0.54 miles.&nbsp; Looking at my heart rate data, I started to struggle when it went above 160-165.&nbsp; Which is strange because I was in that range for the entire second half of the marathon that was 1 month ago.&nbsp; (Humidity?)&nbsp;</p> <p>3:14:33 - 12th male place overall.&nbsp; Good time eating pizza and beer downtown with The Frey&#39;s afterward.&nbsp; We did not win the truck give-away again.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> Sat, 28 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 27, 2019 http://joebell1981.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-27-2019.html <p>walks at work.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Kids run with Sawyer at Mill Race.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Fri, 27 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 25, 2019 http://joebell1981.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-25-2019.html <p>5 mile lunch run w/&nbsp;<strong>8x0.25 miles</strong>&nbsp;at 5k</p> <p>walks at work</p> Wed, 25 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 24, 2019 http://joebell1981.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-24-2019.html <p>easy lunch run with Zach: 7.2 miles - 66:55</p> <p>walks at work</p> Tue, 24 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 23, 2019 http://joebell1981.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-23-2019.html <p>Lunch run w/&nbsp;<strong>8 x Pickups</strong>.&nbsp;
