Dick Lytie Half Marathon

12.84 course was short. 1:19:20 6:11 average per mile
10:00 am) low 30's sunny and windy
Course was not 13.1 but around 12.84 according to my GPS.
My time would be around 1:21:00 if it was 13.1. My PR was
1:21:40 last fall on a flat course. This course has hills.
So I am very happy to PR on a course like this and the
temperature was not ideal.
Going into this race I felt a bit flat. This weeks training
felt harder than normal. So I was not to cofident on how my
performance would be today.
Here is the mile splits:
Mile/Pace
1/6:02
2/6:35 Hill
3/6:06
4/6:34 Hill
5/6:02
6/6:03
7/6:22 Hill
8/6:26 Hill
9/6:05
10/6:04
11/5:58
12/6:10
12.84/5:53 (4:58:17)
As you can see my pace was consistent other than when I hit hiils.
I'm looking forward to my next half marathon in 3 weeks. It is on
a much easier course. If I can run low 6's I should PR again.

Cut one to many corners in this Race?

I always run the corners tight. I talked to several other runners and they all had around the same distance on their GPS's. This course is always short and the race director will amit to that.
