Hutch Delhi Half Marathon experience, 2006

BIB No: 3212
Finish time: 2:18:49
Rank: 395 (420 overall)

It was a wonderful experience at the 2nd Huch Delhi Half marathon.
I had particpated in the previous years event also but what made this event special for me was that I really enjoyed this one. I had chosed a conservative strategy for this race, as I was running this with much less training than required. I was planning to run the race at a consistent pace of 6:15min/km. What I could finally manage on the day was about 6:30 min/km, which resulted in my overall finish time of 2 hours 18 minutes.

I will put in more details / photographs from the event later.
