Utah Valley Half marathon this morning. I felt okay through about 9 miles and then the wheels kind of came off, I was battling stomach issues and a side ache which was kind of weird. I have never had that much in a race but it sucked, my goal was 1:45 but I missed it by a bit. I did gut out the last few miles when I saw that I could beat the 1:50 guy so I stayed with it, all in all not a bad race. I just need to start getting more mileage in, my average pace was 8:16.
