My Experience With The Half Marathon
My best half marathon is 1:07:06 which comes out to an average of 5:07 per mile pace.
My second fastest is when I hit the first half marathon of my marathon PR (2:19:35) in 1:07:09 at the 2007 California International Marathon

Why Can They Run So Fast?
I will say there does take some genetic and physiological talent to run these types of times.
It took me basically from 1992 to 2007 to run a half marathon in 1:07:06.
My debut marathon was a 1:14:01 in 1997.
It takes a lot of work to run a fast half marathon and “fast” is going to mean something different for everyone.
Personally, I think a 2 and half hour marathon is fast for someone who has never run one before.
It is also fast if someone had to lose 50 pounds in order to run it.
There are people who think my best of 1:07:06 is slow and that sub-1:03:00 is fast.
Everyone is different.
