Yesterday’s Oakville Half Marathon went very well indeed. I managed a new PB for the distance – 1:58:03.8, which is 5 minutes quicker than my old PB (set in early 2009, while running shod), and a whole 14 minutes quicker than my finishing time of 2:12:39 at the Mississauga Marathon in May of this year (which was my first barefoot half).
Needless to say, I’m well pleased.
It was a beautiful day, and a great race. I’ll post a full race report soon, but, just to tide you over, here’s a photographer’s proof of me crossing the finish line.
