Race Report: LA Marathon 2009


LA Marathon, my home town!

I had to pee so bad at the start of the race. At around mile 0.25 I left the pack to pee in a bush with my fellow runners. After the quickest pee in my life, I was back on pace.

During the first half marathon I was going way too fast. I was averaging about a 7:30 min mile. My half marathon time was less than 1 hour and 40 minutes! Wow. Things went downhill from there and at about mile 19 I got comfortable with a 9:00 min per mile pace. It was great seeing all the Angelenos out there supporting the runners. There were quite a few people giving out cut oranges during the last 6 miles, they were a life saver.


My final time was 03:37:35 which is about a minute fast than what I ran at the OC Marathon three weeks prior and is now my new personal record. I came in 70th / 1012 in my age division, 606th / 14128 overall, 10% for the win.
