It's been a while since my last race (Honmonji 10K). I figured what better way to get back into it than to run my first official Half Marathon. Although the weather was wet beforehand, it was actually cool and comfortable during the race. I pulled in at 1:41:10, well under my target of 1:45:00. The first 10K was slow (49:57) but I was able to get it together on the back half (splits around 4:35). Happy: yes. Sore: もちろん。 I wonder how I would have done had I been able to actually hit a Wednesday night training session...I will still keep trying!
