She Was a Fast Machine...

I am elated about today's race results. I finished the half in 1:49:51. An average mile pace of 8:23. My girlfriend, 'Kong', finished in 2:04. A PR for us both. :)

Here are my splits (incomplete because for some reason or another I didn't see several of the mile marker signs):

Mile 2 - 18.27.24
Mile 3 - 8.32.74
Mile 5 - 16.57.63
Mile 7 - 16.30.25
Mile 8 - 8.22.70
Mile 11 - 23.36.93
Mile 12 - 8.40.64
Mile 13 - 7.56.89 -- Yippee!
last .1 - 49.56

I am anxious to tell you all about the day - about DDs race - but I'm pooped and still need to get dinner together, etc. Mommy duties never cease. :) I'll post in the morning when I have a few moments of 'free time'. Thanks to all of you who have followed my progress and provided feedback & much needed motivation. You helped make my goal of finishing under 2 hours a reality. Thank you!!


  1. Go Makita! See there was no reason to doubt! We knew you could do it!

  2. Congratulations, Makita! You ROCK!! Woo hoo! We'll be patient for the longer version! Being a Mommy is a never ending job! LOL.

  3. I didn't realize you were such a speed demon! way to go on the HM!

  4. Congratulations, that's quite an accomplishment. My husband's training right now for the half marathon in June.

  5. Woooooooooo Wooooooooo You are awesome Makita! GREAT race, great finish time. All around SOLID performance. I'm very happy for you and proud too!

    It's so good to see that you didn't let the "bummers" you encountered pre-race affect you during the race. I'm glad you got to see your dad at the end. You're right about doing all this with family makes all your hard work and sacrifice that much sweeter when your family backs you!

    Can't wait to see your race pics. The race itself sounds great. Maybe one of these years I'll have to check it out. Congratulations on your awesome accomplishment!!!
