i predicted i would run ~1:22 unless i had a really fantastic or a really blowuptastic day. the weather was perfect -- chilly fall sunshine and no wind. the course was flat and very scenic, running through center city and then going out and back along the shuylkill river.
i felt stronger than i thought i would throughout the race, which was encouraging. i wasn't very confident going in, as i only decided to run this three weeks ago and i haven't been doing a lot of mileage lately (40-50 mpw). i think my training is about to head in the marathony direction, so if that's the case i may be able to take a stab at sub-1:20 in january (either at jacksonville half or naples).
one of my teammates qualified for the olympic trials with a [legit legit] 1:13, and the other one ran 1:17, which was a huge PR for her. so a good day all around. we spent the rest of the day/night exploring philly and halloweening around. it's a fun city.
