2017... First Challenge... Half Marathon March 19th 2017 [Dallas]

H-Dallas 20170319

Yep... it's decided... March 19th is the date for my half marathon in 2017... the last one I ran was all the way back in 2012... Find out how I did in 2012 right here

The Humana Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon in Dallas is an institution... running through downtown...

"When you line up at the starting line you’ll head out through downtown. Deep Ellum, known for unique community displays of art and creativity is next, then make your way over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. The Bishop Arts District comes before the Houston Street Bridge where you’ll get to take a gander at the Dallas skyline as you cross over it. You’ll finish strong at the new finish line venue – Reunion Lawn!"

Start at 8:00am on March 19th 2017... so the temperature is likely to be in the eighties (F, 25+ for the Celsius people) by the time we finish...

Challenge completed... Finished in 1:56:07 - below my target of 2 hours, and well below my prior 21km run where I finished in 2:17.

Next date and place to be set... but the target is clear: break 1:50:00 which will be a tall order (and will depend largely on the course as well...)
