|Approaching the finish w/ Jon Kotter|
I ran the Utah Valley Half Marathon over the weekend, taking 3rd in 1:07:11. Not a blazing fast time for me, but I'm coming off a hamstring strain that has limited my ability to run fast for the past 7 weeks. In fact I just did my first faster track workout during that time-span two days before this race. I was targeting ~1:08 and was able to come in quite a bit faster than that, so it was a good sign that I'm making progress. I posted a slightly more detailed race recap on my running log (2013 UV 1/2 Report).
Next up is the USA Half Marathon Championships in Duluth, two weeks from now. Hopefully I'll keep my upswing going and be back in the 1:06 range.
