i stuck to my plan and it worked pretty well -- controlled for the first eight, then hard to the finish. i didn't really drop the pace as i had originally planned (the plan was flawed -- j.r. moore), but the effort definitely increased to the level i wanted. the conservative start was helpful. it's the first time i've finished striders feeling reasonably good (not crashing and/or wanting to die).

thanks, kassi. missed you today!

Way to go Allie! It is so easy to get caught up in the excitement of the race.....good for you for sticking to your plan!

From Josh E on Sat, Apr 05, 2014 at 18:31:15 from

Nice racing. I don't think the plan was flawed - maybe just a bit too excited on 4-6. You were so nice to sort the bags.

I told James I was aiming for a 6:05 first mile and he thought I said I was running 6:05 pace and adjusted accordingly down to 5:30 for the mile. That's smart racing - sabotage the competitors.

Great job Allie super solid race!

From Yasir on Sat, Apr 05, 2014 at 22:02:49 from

Another solid race Allie. Thanks for checking on me.

I wonder what it feels like to finish a half marathon not wanting to will have to describe that to me in more detail one day. Great race, allie.

From Mikal Epperson on Sun, Apr 06, 2014 at 13:13:54 from

Awesome job, and great execution of your plan! It's nice not feeling trashed after a good run as well! I hope to see you at Des News where you will kick some A!

From Eric Day on Sun, Apr 06, 2014 at 15:13:02 from

Look at that, you surpassed my estimated time for you. You were pessimistic with over 1:24, and I had you under 1:24.



From Rachelle on Mon, Apr 07, 2014 at 10:07:25 from

Very consistent pacing and another solid race Allie. Congratulations!

From RAD on Mon, Apr 07, 2014 at 16:06:27 from

Beautiful race Allie! I'm just a little bummed though...we saw James and the first 3 females (including Devra), but I guess I hadn't paid enough attention to know you were running it and I didn't wait another 30-60 seconds to see you!! STINK! I'm glad you had a good day and an incredible race.

From Nancy on Mon, Apr 07, 2014 at 18:38:16 from

Great race Allie.

From Jason D on Mon, Apr 07, 2014 at 19:41:35 from

Fine execution, I'd say! Well done.

From Jake K on Tue, Apr 08, 2014 at 10:34:28 from

Definitely a big negative split effort. Not wanting to die is great!!

From Matt Poulsen on Sun, Apr 13, 2014 at 16:23:08 from

Nicely done! Love the new glasses and pacifier.

I looked at the results link and your name was capitalized. I think you should ask them to fix it.
