As part of training for some goals that I have for next year, I ran the Sacramento Cowtown Half Marathon. My garmin GPS showed that I ran 13.30 miles in 1:55:07 for an average pace of 8:39. The official results have me covering the half marathon distance of 13.11 miles in 1:55:09 for an average pace of 8:47.
Overall, I was pretty pleased with my time. I have been struggling with my speed in training and had some trepidation about what kind of pace I would be able to carry in a race.
