Newport Liberty Half Marathon

Mile splits were 6:20, 6:31, 6:43, 6:44, 6:41, 6:47, 6:55, 6:44, 7:04, 7:06, 7:25, 7:19, 7:51, 7:40. Think I went out too fast? Trying to run with fast females Lianne and Nova, I was feeling good for a long time.  Lianne pointed out that we were running 5K pace for those first couple of miles.  I needed Gatorade late in the race and there was none. Then my ankle pain kicked in.  As a result, lots of people passed me in the last few miles as I slowed down. BUT, my time was faster than the last time I ran it in 2010 @ 1:34:39. My PLP today was 74.59, and in 2010 it was 71.29. One can't run all trail miles at 9-12 min per mile and expect to race 3 minutes faster per mile. MoMa in 6 days!
