I completed my 3rd HM in 02:27:01 Hrs which was not good timing for me as I completed my 2nd HM in 2:20:22 Hrs. I had planned to complete my 3rd HM within 2:15 Hrs, but it was my bad not able to do that. It was going good till 15 km and I completed 15 km in 1:40 hrs. But after 15 km I was tired, feeling like vomiting, so I slowed down my pace and it took 47 minutes for me to complete the last 6 km of my HM. 

Finally, I was able to complete my 3rd HM in 02:27:01 Hrs. It was very hot and humid in the morning on that day. After completing my run, I was not feeling well and vomited due to dehydration. Then my running group friend Rahul who went with me in the morning, drove my car and dropped home to me and my family. After reaching home I took a rest.
From Next week I started practice for my New York City Marathon 2019.
