Morgan Hill Marathon’15

I ran in Morgan Hill Half Marathon – my second one – on Sunday. It took me 2:10 hours to finish it. It was a minute longer than last year.
Race Highlights:
Pre-race nutrition: 1 cup of tea + 1 banana.
Strong start and consistent pace around 9:36 until mile 8.
In-race hydration: Good combination of 2 water stop (Mile 6, 11) and 1 Gatorade (Mile 9)
Race Lowlights
Mild to noticeable IBT
Walking-break and degraded pace of 11:22 between mile 11-12
Training Highlights:
Consistent weekly mileage 15-16 miles and good taper
Race-day endurance/pace mirrored closely with weekend long runs
Lower and different amount x-training (compared to previous year) did not affect adversely the pace, or introduce new injuries (switched-out bike rides with swims)
