This was just a couple friends doing a training run but I need a good race simulation to give me some confidence going into Boston. I wanted to run between a 1:30-1:31. We did the Provo river half course, warming up 6.7 up to the girls camp with an avg pace of 8:37. Then took a gu and potty break and started into the half marathon. This little race consisted of Julie E, Melody, Rebecca, and myself. I expected them to be faster than me, this has been the trend and they were. But I was really happy with my time, I was quite tired on the way down from the girls camp but actually felt better when it flattened out. Was also happy I could get some sub-7 at the end.
splits-6:37, 6:46, 6:50, 6:41, 7:08 (flattens out on the path, get a drink and go through some snow/ice patches), 7:01, 7:17, 7:43 (headed back up the road by bridal vail for the last part of the last mile and most of this mile), 7:11, 6:57, 7:08, 6:57, 6:54.
Cooled down to the car .5
7:30 avg for the 20.3
