Hyannis Half Marathon
Completed the Hyannis Half Marathon and regained some self confidence. Good race for me with a finish time of 2:00:41 which is a pace of 9:13. After a winter of injuries and sickness I needed a good test like this race. I was able to run well for most if it and complete it with my usual half marathon time. My recent knee pain/issues didn't bother me at all. Nice race and course with the neighborhood loop going out by the beaches. Around 4,000 runners in all.
Tried to keep my pace around 9/mile which I did except for the last few. A little more effort could have resulted in a sub 2 hour run. But that's OK because I regained some lost confidence with this race. It was great having my family there especially our grandchildren. Now I can focus on te new race season and get back to where I was last fall.
