Oshkosh Half Marathon

13.1 Miles 1:19:47 6:05 average
8:00 am) Sunny 50's Perfect!
Not the time I was hoping for but still a new PR. So that's
a positive. I was shooting to hit 5:55 - 6:00 miles. I was
a bit over that. I was not feeling fresh going into this race.
I ran 21 the Saturday before hard and ran hard on Wednesday.
Thursday was supposed to be real easy and was also too hard.
It's okay though as this was not the big race for me. That's May 16.
Here is the splits:
Mile/Pace
1/5:48
2/6:03
3/6:00
4/5:57
5/6:04
6/6:08
7/6:07
8/6:10
9/6:12
10/6:06
11/6:08
12/6:12
13/5:59
13.13/6:16 (:50)
I was 11th overall and 3rd in my age division. They had 1129
participants in the half marathon and 800 in the 5k. This was
a lot more than they had the previous year The perfect weather
was the main reason for the large turnout.
