A.M. Ran with Ted, Jeff, and Ben Crozier. Paced Ben through The Uneventful Half-Marathon in 1:40:40. Ted turned around after 4.5 miles so he would get 6, Jeff turned around 2 miles later to get 10. I had 4 VPBs and did not stop my watch on those, so my time was probably about 2 minutes faster. I did about 0.5 of marathon pace running catching up.
If anybody ever wants to be paced in the Uneventful Half let me know. Great way to find out what you can do in the half without paying $40 for it or more. And you get a personal pacer/bottle carrier as a bonus as well. Although if you are running 1:15 I probably would not volunteer to carry your bottle, but then you won't need it. Anything between 1:50 and 1:15 is good, I can find a way to make it fit into my training schedule. The course is a loop starting at my house but most of it is on the Provo River Trail. Not super fast, but not terribly slow either. Appears flat, but there are a lot of bridges, and there is a very gradual grade. You are following a river after all, if there was no grade it would not flow.
Tested Jeff's wife Kimia's top end speed. At first she ran 101.5 meters on the road in 19.9, but 100 was too long to be a fair measurement of her speed. I noticed that she was a lot faster in the first 30 meters, in fact, so fast that it took me a while to catch up. So we did it one more time, this time she was going to run 30 meters and then I was going to hold pace to the finish of the 101.5. I ended up with 17.7.
Added 2 more with Benjamin in 15:36. Did explosions. He ran his last mile in 6:52.
P.M. 2 with Jenny in 19:20. Julia ran the first 1.5 in 14:43.
