Mill Race Marathon.  6th year in a row running the full in the hometown race.  Coming in to the race with a realistic assessment of fitness.  Fortunately, a cooler morning throughout the race.  Good running with a fella who has become running friend most of the race, also. 

Splits:

1st 10mi.: 6:56, 7:00, 6:52, 6:53, 6:56, 6:52, 6:58, 6:50, 6:49, 6:53,

2nd 10mi.: 6:44, 7:01, 6:53, 6:51, 6:47, 6:56, 7:00, 6:57, 6:59, 7:06, and

the dreaded last 10k:  7:00, 7:13, 7:21, 7:41, 7:46, 7:36, 0.52 in 7:47 pace

Pretty poor finish - going from 7th place dropping to 14th place
