7:00am: got up and took a shower, then ate one bread with cheese, two big
cup of soy bean milk, one banana. then head to downtown.
7:50am: it is really surprised to me, according to weather report, it is
supposed to rain in the morning, i doubt many people would show up. But from
417's elgin street exit, I saw many runners headed to the start line, many
people took the cheer signs with them.
8:25am: Now really excited, but i kept telling myself, slow down, keep the
8:30am: start! 8900 participants, cool!
8:35am: once get on the wellington road, you can see people mountain people
sea, people are covered on the whole wellington street, I never saw so many
people on the road in canada.
3km: first water station, skipped; the weather is still cloudy, no rain yet.
I estimated my pace was about 12:00, little bit slower than the previous
training, but feels good.
at roadside, lots of people cheered up, i knew i need to pace myself to save
more energy later.
9km: got two power jar and stopped at the water station, drink a little bit,
then continue. I increased the pace speed to about 11:00.
11km: from hull ran back to ottawa, it started to rain, the road condition
is ok, not slippy.
12km: passed by the congress centre, lots of people on the road side cheered
up and there are two music group played rock music. it does like a party.
16km: stopped at the water station again, after that increase the pace to 9:
00. 5 more km left.
18km: felt very excited, only 3km left, at that moment i knew i would finish
this run without any problem, i don't have watch, don't know time yet.
20km: increased the pace to race pace, on both side of road, people were
lined up to cheer us up. about 100 meter to final, I saw the final post. Way
21km: Finished: 2:00:04.
this is my first try of half marathon, it is really surprised me, i hardly
believed i could reach that final line in about 2:00. At final line, met
Steve, my colleague, he run about 1:53.
Smart training on runnersword website is really useful, from my experience,
i followed it, not hard at all. I really believe most newbie like me can
achieve this goal. Cheers!
