Ex-Cat Marc Pelerin finished 48th overall at the Philadelphia Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon over the weekend. That time averages out to 5:22 per mile. Pelerin blogged as follows about the race:
I had thought I could run 66:30 or so, but clearly that wasn't going to happen even if I had the best day. My splits showed that after each 5k I got considerably slower than the previous one. However, I've conquered the half marathon distance and I set PRs at almost every distance above 5k. I set a 10k road, 10 mile, and half marathon PR. And as upset as I am about the slow time, I really can't complain about that 3 PRs.
