Okay, so here’s the analysis… I’m pleased with the time, 1:05:13 which nets a 10:30 minute per mile, faster than I thought I would do. I came in… 2396 place out of 3001 recorded times. Ugh, I thought I was ahead of lots of people. Oh well.
In my 40-44 age range for men, I placed 242nd out of 265, pretty close to the bottom. Wow, there are a lot of really fast guys out there in my age bracket, right?
But all this means little- my goal was to finish as strong as I could, and now I have some benchmarks that I can set some new sights on.
