2010 OUC Half Marathon Race review is located here.
Yesterday was the OUC Half Marathon in Orlando. This is always a great race and it's pretty much in my back yard. The race passes within on block of my house. The course is also about 70% of the course I run every weekend for my 70.3 training (which makes it a little boring for me). Unfortunately, the race is also held on about 2 miles of old brick which loves to mess with my knees.
The race went really well for me considering how many races I have completed in the past month. I had Rev3 70.3, and then two weeks later I had Miami Man 70.3. The week after that was Space Coast 13.1 and this race followed seven days later. Next week I have the Santa Run 13.1. Needless to say I am investing in Advil lately.
I completed the race in 1:55:03 with a 8:46 pace. Which is two minutes faster then my 2010 result.
