Christchurch Half Marathon

Last Sunday I competed in the 2015 Christchurch Half Marathon! My official time was 1:20:24 and I was 59th across the finish line! This is my second official half marathon and achieved a new personal best!

My goal was sub 1:20. The plan was to maintain 3:47 min/km for as long as I could. To my surprise, I (almost) managed to maintain this pace! I carried an energy gel but I did not use it.

I enjoyed the course. It was the first time it was held in the city since the devastating earthquakes in 2010/2011. I was 79kg on the day (I have lost several kilograms since having dental braces).
