Shades of Death Half Marathon Race Review
After running the Spooky Sprint 5k, dancing the night away at a wedding on Saturday and sleeping for just 4 hours, I was a little nervous going into the Shades of Death Half Marathon. But I sucked it up knowing I had to run 18 miles to stay on track with my NYCM training plan. I woke up, downed the world’s worst DD coffee (I cringe as I type that. How can DD make a bad coffee? I assure you they did..ick!) and made it to the parking area about an hour before the start. The parking area was about 6 miles from the start so the race provided a shuttle in the form of school buses. Man, those seats seem to have shrunk as I’ve gotten older.

Packet pickup was easy but the lines for the port-o-potties were so long that the race was delayed by 10 minutes. After a quick ready, set, go…we were off. The race was timed gun to chip and I crossed the start about 25 seconds after the gun.
Mile 1 – 10:13, Mile 2 – 9:41 , Mile 3 – 9:47
The course was one giant loop that runners had to complete twice. The beginning was rolling hills and Mile 1 was really congested. I tried not to weave or go out too fast, I didn’t want to wear myself out for silly reasons.
Mile 4 – 9:55, Mile 5 – 10:25, Mile 6 – 10:00
When I saw the sub 10 minute mile pop up after mile 4 I told myself that I have to slow down. I knew that I probably couldn’t maintain a sub 10 for the entire 13.1 after a late night of dancing.
Mile 7 – 10:17, Mile 8 – 10:35, Mile 9 – 10:03
I told myself that if I still felt good after finishing mile 9 that I should pick up the pace. The end of the loop is flat with only two hills so I knew that I could do it.
Mile 10 – 10:02, Mile 11 – 10:02, Mile 12 – 9:43
Except I didn’t sub 10 minute mile for Miles 10 or 11. The reason??? There was a strong head wind and at times I felt like I was running backwards. I hate head wind!
Mile 13 – 9:32, .2 – 9:40 pace
I tried to sprint into the finish but it was uphill and my body wouldn’t move. I did manage to pass two people at the end so that was fun!
Finish Time – 2:11:48 for a minute mile pace of 10:03
I was handed a metal, water and grabbed a coconut water for the hubs before getting back on the parking shuttle. I finished the final 5 miles with the little man when I got home. Can’t deprive that boy of his daily run!
I was both disappointed and happy with my results. I secretly wanted to sub 2:10 after last week’s surprise awesome showing at the Staten Island Half and I thought this relatively flat course would be it. Alas, I think the late night of dancing did me in. I have one more half marathon this coming Saturday and maybe that will be my race.
As for the Shades of Death Half Marathon…I would totally do this race again. I loved the race shirt, the course, the farm scenery and the spooky theme. Even the mile markers were grave stones! If you like Halloween, you will love this race.
