The Mercer Island half was my first race after moving to Seattle. The race course was really pretty. Even though it was pretty windy and hilly, I still managed to PR. Must have been residual fitness from the marathon.
I was shooting for a hopeful 2:15 finish but fell just short for 2:15:08. Almost.
Compared to the other runners, this put me at
- Overall: 1,006 of 1,370 (top 73.4%)
- Gender: 399 of 627 (63.6%)
- Age/gender group: 69 of 100 (69.0%)
These runners must have been really good because I sucked compared to most everyone else. Still a PR.
Great day for a PR! Would do over again in nice weather.
