Not that my distance or speed is up to where yours is (yet), but I've learned I've needed to rethink fuelling. For example, I would never think of taking a gel for a 10K, but I was recently spanked for not doing that. And your 8:03 is my speedy pace!

For a "training" run, this was great!


Nice!! I learned at my half marathon tune up race not to blow myself up and ruin my marathon! LOL... Eye on the prize. Congratulation!


Congrats on your new pr, that's an awesome time!! I totally understand the second-guessing yourself and race strategy, but you did awesome. I've never fueled for a half distance either, but as I raced the last two a little harder I was thinking that might be helpful.


Thanks, Laura! I'll definitely be fueling during my next half. The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that that played a huge part in my pace slipping so much.


Thanks, Wes. I'm so very glad I learned this lesson now, instead of on the big day!


Thanks, Jennifer! I am constantly learning something new when it comes to training and racing - which is one of the things I love about it!
