Congratulations, great running Flo!! That's an awesome time!!
Great job! Sick time. How'd it feel? That's the highest I've seen your HR creep up to at the end but even still, for that pace, that's awesome. What are your thoughts on this goal?!
Fantastic average speed for a half , well done
Brilliant stuff Flo!!
Inspiring, awesome result..
What happened after mile 9ish? You stepped on the gas for the final 4 miles!
Congrads Flo, you smoked it!
Congrats! That looks like a nice flat course to PR on.
Thanks guys! I hadn't trained many back to back 6:00 min / miles so after 8 miles it became pretty hard to maintain the pace
@Scott - at mile 8 to 10 I slacked off. At that point there was a 20+ miles an hour head wind, all the 5 hour+ marathoners were on the same course so lots of zigzagging, I choked on water at an aid station, etc. Many excuses but I also learned a lot for next time. Ended up in 60th place out of 14251 so I’m happy with that
Thanks Bill, HR creeped up much higher than I expected. My ‘resting’ HR before the race was 105 (compared to 40-ish normally) so the nerves came into play there as well. Mile 1-6 was fine, then it got though until mile 10. Then I was passed by the #1 female so the bike cops cleared the 5 hour+ marathoners out of the way for her (and me) so less Zigzagging the next mile orso. Back to the drawing board for Boston in 6 months.
Awesome. Congrats Floris
Solid race!! Nice strong finish
That's really fast! Good job!!
Wow! I started following you because you totally owned me on a few long beach segments but your results are very inspirational. Great race result. Keep it up!
Nice job ... Congrats and hope you don't hurt too much today ...
