This was a warm one here in Colubus, IN. Humid and warm, and results across the board reflecteed that. Two personal friends who are usually in the 2:30-2:40 range stuck it out for 3rd and 4th place overall in 2:50 each. My race was similar. Started out with an aerobic pace in the morning hours while it was still below 70 deg. by 9 am it was climbing through mid 70s and finished up at almost 80 deg.
Half split - 1:29:33. 20 mile time - 2:21... I looked down at several 9 min. miles in the final 5k. 3:16:33, for what I think was about 10th place overall. I did not win the Cummins Ram truck in the truck giveaway. For the first year, the announcing people actuall read 3 people's names that were not present! They just had to show up to the announcement, and they would have won a $50k truck!
