Southern California Half Marathon

This is my first time back to racing after several months off after “athletic hernia” surgical repair and slow recovery from a pelvic structural instability and inflammation problem. (More about that problem in another post).

I was just glad to be running pain-free, but I wasn’t to very please with my pacing. Started out feeling too good and because of my overall endurance racing inexperience, had some slowdown in the last few miles. Last year when doing this race, I started out much slower, but really picked it up and did a negative split. This year, not so much and about 24 seconds overall slower than last year. Not too bad considering the amount of time I took off from running this year for injury recovery.

Splits: 6:47, 6:56, 6:56, 7:05, 6:47, 7:06, 6:56, 6:59, 7:14, 7:14, 7:18, 7:28, 7:30
