Oh yes, I definitely had a personal record. Did I say I thought I broke 29 minutes. Well, yes. Yes I did. In fact, I came in 7th in my age/gender group with a 28:32, for a pace of 9:11 per mile. Outstanding. That’s shaving over four minutes off my time from last month’s race.
I am thrilled with these results. I had a negative 20 split time, meaning I ran faster in the second half of the race than the first. There’s also a new statistic I’m not familiar with: 48.9% Age Grade, which I’ve been explained means that of all the men in my age that run official timed races in the world, I’m faster than 48.9% of them, or just under half. I’ll take that, but I hope I can improve that. I’m competitive enough that I’ll want to track that statistic obsessively.
