Great day for a race.  weather was good. I met Joe Bell and a couple of his friends from Lexington, KY there.  They all three had great races today.  PR's I believe.  Thomas and Tim ran the half marathon 1:10:xx and 1:20:xx  respectively.  Joe finished the full in 2:50:xx.  I was a little shy of a PR.  Felt good, but just ran out of gas early.

Miles 1 through 4:  6:23.7, 6:33.4, 6:32.8, 6:31.3  effort seemed easy. pace was a little fast.  I was wanting to try banking time which is always ill advised, but I wanted to try it.  I didn't feel I had the mileage I needed in training and would need the time for the end.  I know I know, a textbook mistake.

Miles 5 through 8:  6:33.1, 6:34.8, 6:24.9, 6:28.9.  Still a very big group around me. The field of runners seemed to be very strong.

 

Miles 9 through 12:  6:42.4, 6:35.5, 6:50.5, 6:54.6:

 

Miles 13 through 16:  7:04.4, 7:12.3, 7:34.7, 7:43.5:  My original plan is to let off the gas a little and at 15 run a 8 minute pace for about a half of a mile.  This actually worked out well because my level of effort was now too high this early in the race and there was a little bit of a climb.  I hydrated as much as possible.

Miles 17 through20: 7:44.1, 7:44, 7:25.8, 8:02.1:  I repeated the recovery in mile 18.  2:20:12 for 20 miles

 

Miles 21 through 24:  7:43.7, 8:21.8, 8:07.4, 8:26.2:  Legs hurting pretty bad.  I'm just ready to be done.

 

Miles 25 26 and .2:  8:55.5, 9:05.8, 1:34:  I really died at the end.

 

Overall, I'm happy with the run.  It was a good day.
