This year's installment of the Mill Race Marathon. Warm from the start - 70 degrees and climbed in to the 80s. Great time with Nathan, Heidi, and then an Oliver appearance after the race. Heidi almost Pred in the Half, and Nathan suffered through the Full like me. :)
Went pretty well for the first 15 miles for me before it went south: 6:50, 49,47, 54, 44, 46, 51, 48, 45, 43, 45, 48, 38, 45, 44 - Hung on to the lead females up through this point. They held strong and ran 2:55, and 3:00 respectively.
I let them go shortly before the airport section. And then my day was not as fun: 7:14, 7:19, 7:33, 7:59, 7:49, 8:04, 8:12, 8;20 8:32, 8:34, 8:32, 4:34 for 0.54 miles. Looking at my heart rate data, I started to struggle when it went above 160-165. Which is strange because I was in that range for the entire second half of the marathon that was 1 month ago. (Humidity?)
3:14:33 - 12th male place overall. Good time eating pizza and beer downtown with The Frey's afterward. We did not win the truck give-away again.
