Blackmores half marathon results: so close!

The times are published. I ran yesterday’s Blackmore Half Marathon, part of the Sydney Running Festival, in 1:44:47.

That put me in the top 22% of times for all 7594 people who ran the race, the top 35% of all male runners, and the top 36% of men aged 40-44. I kept my pace just under 5 minutes per kilometre.

That’s just 35 seconds off my personal best. I knew yesterday I was close. Part of me is really happy with that result, and part of me is angry for not pushing just a bit more.

    Awesome result. I did my first half yesterday and finished in 1hr 58 I’m in the same age category but femal, such a great run but the last few kms were challenging. Cardio wise I could have run all day but my legs couldn’t. cant wait for the next one

    sorry meant to say great time but would be frustrating to get so close to your PB

    35 seconds never seems like a big deal until it’s at the end of a 1h45 run. It all comes down to the mental game; you’ll get it next time.
