Beastman -- 1:07:30 in Tucson!


Beloved GRC ex-pat Dirk de Heer ran about a 1:07:30 in the Tucson Half-Marathon yesterday, good for 2nd overall. Came through mile 10 in 50:25 -- and "easily," he remarked. An 8-second PR for The Dutchman, who hasn't even begun to step up his training.

Thanks Red Fox, and of course... I follow everyone at GRC (and beyond if you include Benedict Sloane). And let me know if you're up for Mt Sac 10k in April anyone!

and p.s. thanks CTR, but I started hurting around mile 9, those last 4 felt very long!

In addition, this was not accomplished at or below sea level.

Congratulation Dirk! Tucson Half ran the second half, much easier than the fracking full marathon...
