Even though I had only run eight "speed" workouts in the last five months, I still thought it would be fun to see how I'd do at another half. My two previous times, both from November 2012, were 1:38:46 (Boundary Bay) and 1:33:51 (Seattle Half).

- I ran the first half in about 46 minutes (7ish/mile pace) and the second half in 44 (6:40ish/mile). A decent negative split.
- Fastest lastest: although my GPS miles were off from my starting-line watch mishap, I did the last 1.4 miles in 8:58 (6:24 pace).
- Official chip time of 1:29:59.6; ha! Sub 90 minutes was sort of an intriguing idea, but nothing I was really pushing for. To be under by less than half a second is fine by me.
- 4th overall and 3rd male.
