Official stats for this morning’s Missisauga Half Marathon…
Chip time: 1:57.46.2
Average pace: 5:30
Overall placing: 816/2363
Category placing (male 60-69): 14/48
Gender placing: 525/1058
Interestingly, I broke out of my “mid-pack runner status” with this one in terms of overall and category placing (though not in gender placing). That makes me feel better about my slow finishing time.
The other good news is that I’ll turn 65 next month. That means that, in many races (but not this one), I’ll move to another age category (65 to 69). I’ll be at the younger edge of that one. Woo hoo!
Full race report to follow soon.
