On track for a 3:30:00 marathon

In my race report for the Manhattan Half Marathon, I reported a finishing time of 1:39:32. There is a significance to this that I felt warranted a separate post. Here’s why this finishing time is notable: using Greg McMillan’s equivalent performance calculator, 1:39:32 translates to an equivalent marathon time of 3:29:55.

I know it’s a squeaker. But, dang, it’s under 3:30!

My goal for April is sub-3:30. I’ve just comfortably run an “equivalent” half marathon time along the same course and I’ve still got seven weeks of training to go until I start my taper! So I’m feeling really confident about coming in under three and a half hours on April 6.
