I ran the Long Island Half Marathon today and it was less than a stellar performance for me.

Lack of good training and fighting injuries took their toll creating my 2nd worse Half Marathon time.

Weather turned out to be really good with temps in the 50's maybe high on the humidity which could have caused some issues with the breathing but not much.

Splits were as follows:

1) 6:50
2) 6:42
3) 6:54
4) 7:15 (started cramping in my tush now)
5) 7:20
6) 7:22
7) 7:27
8) 7:29
9) 7:21
10) 7:36 (really hurting in both sides of tush and left knee)
11) 7:42
12) 7:33
13) 7:38
.1) :47

Total official time was 1:36:10 I placed 184/3154 overall and 22/242 in age group If I had run 1:30:00 as planned I would have easily been in top 100 overall and 11th in age group. Knee and leg are fine now but the knot in the left side of the tush still there. I have a lot of work to do before Twin City Marathon in order to both keep up with Danielle and get Boston Qualified.

Enjoy the day everyone.
