RACE- Decided to finally run the Dino Half Marathon, because, even though I live in Vernal, I haven't ever ran the Dino. Got my packet, ate a good dinner, and made sure to get to bed early. Woke up at 4:30, and got to the bus pickup by 6. I am glad that I waited for one of the last buses to get to the starting line, because it was a little chilly up in the canyon. Half mile warmup with dynamics, and then we were off. I didn't really know exactly what I wanted, time-wise, for this race, but I just decided to go with whatever my body felt like doing. From the start of the race, two guys made a big surge to the front, and kept the lead. After about 3 miles in, I passed one of the front runners, putting me in third, which is the position I held for practically the rest of the race. I was really happy with how consistent my splits were throughout the race, because I didn't think that 6:00-6:05 miles were going to happen today. Both lungs and legs felt really good for practically the entire race, and I caught up with the guy who was in second place with about a mile to go. I then maintained my pace, and came in with a time of 1:19:51, which is my third sub 1:20 half. Overall a really good race put on by the Runtastic group, and after the race, I ran into Rob Murphy, who I didn't even realize was running the Dino Half. Really nice guy, and quite the fast runner for his age group. What I really love about running, is being able to be a part of a community, and having the opportunity to connect with runners from different backgrounds and talent levels. Overall a very fun race!
