RIL (Run In Lyon) - half-marathon (Lyon, France)
Completed in 1:30:56 - 13th women, 4th age category
Good rehearsal for major race coming ahead. Disappointing time and place, knowing this had been run faster before... Weather conditions? Pouring rain during all night and until 30 minutes before the race... this sets the scene :-)
On track for the first 7km. Slightly ahead. Then 2km with rolling hills to slow down the pace. Passing the 10K at ok-pace, and then slowing down... Running in a close to 2km-long tunnel (?) helped to drop the pace even more... Luckily the special cheering after that got the pace up and up. Not enough to win places, but enough to be within the decent 1h30-range at the finish line.
Decent and satisfactory Sunday run under rainy skies in the Capital of the Gaules. The warm-up is still ongoing...
