Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasadena Half Marathon Race Report

Posted on Feb 19, 2012 under Race | 1 Comment

The Pasadena half is the first Rock ‘n’ Roll race of at least 3 or 4 that I’ll be running this year and also the inaugural race in this particular market. Look for some travel deals and join in next time! I’ve run a few other inaugural races before and haven’t had any issues so far, and the Pasadena RnR was no different. I mentioned this when I posted my results on DailyMile, it doesn’t matter how many half marathons I’ve ran before (or will in the future), it’s still a tough distance to run. But I’m sure I’m making it a lot harder than I have to due to my lack of training and poor race strategy. Results: 1:36:45, 13.20 (7:19 min/mile), 35/325 AG, 218/5851 Overall. Considering what I ran in my last two half marathons (1:38 & 1:34), I was shooting for a 1:35 finish but I suppose I was close enough. Read the rest of this entry »

When I ran this race last year, the previous race I ran was in November of the year before. But this year, I had actually ran 2 half marathons in January, so you’d think I would have been better prepared for this race. But after reading last year’s race report, it sounds like I ran the race very smart and was able to run slightly faster than this year. Results: 43:43 (7:03 min/mile), 15/75 AG, 81/2396 Overall. So it was about a minute slower than last year, nothing to complain about, both solid performances. And keeping up with last year’s trend, I was able to beat my brother and his friends this year as well (although my brother did quite well at 49:16 considering he ran once in the last month or two…I wonder who that sounds a lot like??)
