Two hours, four minutes, and 59 seconds – That’s my official finish time for the Fargo half marathon last Saturday. Here are the complete statistics:
- time: 2:04:59
- gun time: 2:10:15
- 10 k: 56:57
- pace: 9:33
- overall place: 1948 out of 4371
- division place: 179 out of 272
- gender place: 1098 out of 1726
As you can see, I didn’t quite make my goal of finishing under two hours, but I’m still very happy with my time nevertheless.
Like I told Casey after I finished, I can see myself running another half marathon and attempt to make my two-hour goal, but I have absolutely no desire to try a full 26.2 mile marathon. I really admire the people who can do it, but my body just isn’t built for those kinds of distances!
