Half marathons I've run

This morning I ran the Wisconsin Half Marathon in Kenosha. I've aspired to break 90 minutes (1 hour, 30 minutes) in a half marathon, and I did it today, finishing in 1 hour, 29 minutes. Breaking 1:30 in a half marathon is a fairly decent accomplishment in running, and I wasn't sure if I could do it. The weather was ideal for running in Kenosha this morning with temperatures in the low 50s, not much wind, and partly cloudy skies. I felt really good for the first 12 miles, and needed to dig deep in the last mile to come in under 90 minutes. All in all, it was a great day.

Half marathons I've run in the past three years:
1. Wisconsin Half Marathon (Kenosha), 2011. 1 hour, 29 minutes.
2. South Shore Half Marathon (Milwaukee), 2011. 1 hour, 32 minutes.
3. Badgerland Striders Half Marathon (Milwaukee), 2011. 1 hour, 33 minutes.
4. Wisconsin Half Marathon (Kenosha), 2010. 1 hour, 34 minutes.
5. South Shore Half Marathon (Milwaukee), 2010. 1 hour, 35 minutes.
6. Lake Geneva Half Marathon, 2009. 1 hour, 41 minutes.
7. Wisconsin Half Marathon (Kenosha), 2009. 1 hour, 37 minutes.
