Race Weekend 2009 Half Marathon

Last Sunday I had the chance to participate in the premier Race Weekend of the Country: The Ottawa Race Weekend.

According to the pre-race announcer for the half marathon, about 37,000 runners from all over the world participated in the weekend’s races (2k, 5k, 10k, half, full) and over 100,000 spectators were expected to line the streets to watch and cheer during the events. That’s a big crowd!

I started training 5 days per week back on Feb 2, 2009. My goal was to complete the half marathon in 1:30:00. I was doing well during the first 10k, holding my 4:15 pace, however I started slowly fading afterward and finished with a respectable 1:36:54 official time. I learned a few things but I still had a great time and enjoyed the race! My official results are here.

    I was at the race with my kids to watch my wife run the 1/2 marathon.
    I think I saw Stefan go by, but I can’t be sure. He was moving pretty fast.
