Lewis & Clark 2007 Marathon Stats

Well here are the mile by mile stats from my race last Sunday. I was in great company it would appear. Dick Beardsley was running in my age group and managed to just beat me. He finished in 2:56:49, and I ran behind him at 5:56:02...waaaay behind him *LOL*.

Ok, now for my stats:
I believe these times are based on the gun:
First half: 2:46:55 Pace: 12:45
Second half: 3:09:07 Pace: 14:26

These times are from my Garmin:
Mile 1: 12:51
Mile 2: 12:37
Mile 3: 12:41
Mile 4: 14:01 (Think this included a potty break)
Mile 5: 12:09
Mile 6: 12:09
Mile 7: 12:13
Mile 8: 12:00
Mile 9: 12:12
Mile 10: 13:13
Mile 11: 12:15
Mile 12: 12:22
Mile 13: 12:35
Mile 14: 13:00
Mile 15: 12:34
Mile 16: 13:27
Mile 17: 13:04
Mile 18: 13:07 (Fatigue started to get the best of me from this point on)
Mile 19: 14:06
Mile 20: 14:47
Mile 21: 18:24 (I'm glad I didn't quit here)
Mile 22: 15:49
Mile 23: 15:20
Mile 24: 16:22
Mile 25: 13:18
Mile 26: 13:25
.02 Mile:13:27

So ok no negative splits, but after looking at things and blowing out Mile 21, I'm glad to see that I was able to get back into the 13 minute/mile range for the final two miles...I would have never guessed that I picked up the pace that much....again thanks to that nameless lady that finished just ahead of me for being an inspiration to get in under the 6:00:00 time frame.

Dick Beardsley ran with my running group on Saturday, and that guy is FAST. Those skinny little legs just shoot him forward. He finished 8 miles way before I finished 6; of course, I'm injured...so that's my excuse.

Way to go!!! Does it feel good to finish a marathon? I am starting to get really, really excited for my first one in 2 weeks.

Go Randy, Go Randy, Go Randy!! You did AWESOME!! I can't believe you sped up after mile 24. I'd probably be crawling by then LOL

Randy said...

It's really funny Marcy, I actually thought I was crawling, it wasn't until several days later when I analyzed what my Garmin had recorded that I realized the pace difference there over the last 2 miles.....

One of my running buddies suggested that like an old mule, I smelled the barn.
