It’s the night before and I’m feeling great! Three months of training all come down to the results of tomorrow. I went through my results from the last couple and they are as follows:
A little background on the results, my first organized run was a 5K in 2004 at Jefferson Hospital Philadelphia Distance Run (now renamed ING Distance Run). I finished in 32:51. The following year I decided to step it up to the full half marathon for the run. That one I finished in 3:05:56 because I pulled a muscle around mile 9 and I had to walk the the rest of the way. The reason was because I didn’t train properly. The next run I did was the Broad Street Run in 2006.
As you can see, my times varied widely over the years. All due to training. This year I took the route of structured training with a group to improve my abilities. Proper hydration, hill training, speed work and pace were the focus of our training. And now in the morning I will get to see the how well that training pays off. My prediction is a personal record.
