Today was the Capitola Half Marathon. I trained for this race and wanted to do really well. My official time is 1:40:25, only 25 seconds off my goal time of under 1:40. I was 13 in my age group (30-39) out of 109, and 70 overall out of 1,072. Out of the 13 miles I ran, 9 of them were under 7:50. The weather was perfect and the course was flat to a slight slope, with a few short hills to keep things interesting. I think the Santa Cruz Half is flatter, but I liked this course better because it stayed along the coast. The shirt was really great, it was blue and different from the white shirt the Marathon runners got.
