Deena Kastor‘s bid for the Colleen De Reuck’s US Masters Half Marathon record of 71:50 came up just short as Kastor ran 71:57 today at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas Half-Marathon today.

Windy conditions hampered Kastor who after the race tweeted:

Weatherunderground shows the wind was roughly in the 15mph range during the race which started at 8 am local time.

Quick Take #1: Kastor did pick up at least two consolation prizes along the way as she went through 10 miles in 55:14 – 22 seconds under the old US record of 55:36. Worldrunning.com says her 20km split was 68:18 which was 29-seconds faster than the rold US record of 68:47.

That being said, those records are kind of artificial as presumably De Reuck ran faster than both times herself when she ran her 71:50 half-marathon.In the men’s race, Julius Kiptoo edged former Oklahoma State star Colby Lowe 66:02 to 66:04.
