Houston Marathon results-slower than expected 1/13/2013 9:32AM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
I was expecting some faster times from the hype.

Anyone have details for the slow times?

watching the webcast it was pouring hard rain for at least the 1st half of the race. Also temps were cold and there was a pretty hefty wind at points on the course.

From what I read there were extremely hard rains, hail at times and up to 20 mph winds. Not the conditions to even approach a fast time.

Ran it. It was awful out there. Rain at the beginning froze everyone then strong north winds for about 90 min.

Meanwhile, the women didn't wimp out. Says something about how much mentally tougher women are, or maybe they focused on competing and pushing themselves, rather than obsessing about splits.

I watched the webcast, which was pretty lousy, other than that there were independent cameras for each race's leaders. The top two women had their own pacers, who ran IN FRONT OF THEM for about 26.1 miles, so they didn't have to face the winds at all. The winning guy broke from the pack when the rain began (AGAIN!) at about 1/2 way, so it's no wonder he ran "slowly" but it was gutsy.

Real nasty out there, even the guys in the half ran slow. I wouldn't take too much from it.
