The race went really well, as wells can be expected for losing three weeks in July to deadlines. It was overcast sky, humid but in the 70s the whole race. Not ideal but still better than some longer runs I've done.

The first six miles were great - though I learned that I really dislike mike markers telling my time any more. Maybe now that have a time to beat it will be different but I really just want to minimize reminders that I'm "racing". The next five miles were fine. The next mike was hideous and then the final mile was awesome.

I am... Surprisingly proud if myself. I suspect it us because I felt mental strength, the will to succeed the whole time rather than wondering if I'd get there through the pain.

I'm a little stiff right now in my hips. Feet are a little tingly but it's good.

So. What's next?

Don't answer that. I already know. :)

Tonight will be some serious chillaxin'
