Temecula Turkey Trot Part II

Results are in for the Temecula Turkey! Here are my official race results:

Time- 59:52
Place- 59th out of 153 finishers
           12th in my division (30-39 males)
           34th among males

Ok, you have no idea how happy I am with these results! I spoke yesterday about my desires for this race (to finish without walking and under 1 hour), and I made both of my goals!

According to the running calculator at Marathon Guide, I should be able to do the half marathon in 2:12:45. In my heart, I would like to finish that thing in under 2 hours, so obviously I have some speed work to do, but you know what? For my first half marathon, if I could finish in under 2:15, I'd be extremely happy.

Thank you Alicia! It's been a good day so far!

Stephanie...we'll see pretty soon. I have a 15K and a half marathon early next year to see how my goals start coming. I'll update as they happen!

Don suggested I follow your blog as i run too. Your times are similar to mine although I haven't run that many races. I did run a 2:12 half last May.

Keep up the good work -- I feel your need for speed.

Eric,
Thanks for visiting the blog! I hope you'll make a habit of it like Don has! Anyway, I am feeling out the running thing. I like it a lot, but I need to break through some mental blocks on it. I will be writing about that soon.
