New Personal Best 21.1km – 1:18:51!!!
On September 18, I ran my best ever half-marathon time (21.1km), in Ottawa during the annual Army Run. At 1:18:51, I placed 11th out of 6423 people. Broken down even further, that’s a 3:45 per kilometer pace and put me at 11/3256 men and 6/613 in my age group 20-29 (which is the most competitive!). That shattered my last personal best (PB) I set in 2009 in Kingston, ON which was 1:20:48. Shaving off 2 minutes is a pretty big deal, especially at those speeds and especially aft
