Fun facts: PDX Half Marathon

As earlier reported, I recently blew my half marathon personal record out of the water at the Portland Half Marathon with a finish time of 1:50:36. My previous PR was actually from my first, the Kaiser Permanente Half in February: 2:00:07.

Happy, wet finisher

While waiting for finish photos to be posted, I found a collection of fun race stats from the race. Here are a few worth sharing:

  • I finished 155th out of 2,273 and in front of 97% of female runners.
  • It took me 2 minutes and 39 seconds to get through the start line.
  • Over the last 4.2 miles, I passed 47 runners and was past by 4.
  • My average speed was 7.1 miles per hour.
