First half 24:06, second half 25:19.
49:25

It was a very hard race for me. Just happy I could keep going at steady pace and finish. Legs felt fine but fitness was lacking. My longest run in the past year was 5.6 km yesterday. Wanted a negative split but failed. No biggie. It’s good to see where I am regarding endurance. Did manage to go under 50 min. I’m happy with that.

Well-organized event, even though I got an XL shirt (would be good as a pajamas) and a small urn instead of a medal.

Grateful that Nan got up early and left the house at 4 am with me to go to the race.
