14 mile walk

Last Saturday I did 14 miles on the Venice Beach/Santa Monica boardwalk. Flat course, somewhat warm weather.

Time: 3:06:28

That averages out to a pace of about 13:20 minutes per mile and a 1/2 Marathon time of just under 3 hours. Checking through the 2006 LA Marathon results for my age group (50-54) I'm at a pace that would take me to third place. Of course there were only 3 racewalkers in my age group so it isn't all that great! Still, I'm in striking range of the second place pace of 13:14 and with enough training maybe even get up to the winning pace of 12:10.
