        Great write up.  You definitely showed the spirit of the race.  I definitely got what I was expecting out of it based on the descriptions.  The talent level was great, the team atmosphere was fun.

        When I saw my mile 7 split I also had a whoops thought as well, but that seems to be just how the course is.

        I ran a 1:30:09 and came in 402

        I keep thinking about miles 2,3 &4 and thinking if I had run those a little less conservatively I could have gotten in under 90 minutes. Plus I think I backed off too much at mile 8 after looking at my mile 7 split.

        Here are my splits.

          Great race report. You forgot to mention you dropping trou while the people across the street were trying to enjoy the sun and not the moon.

            Excellent report and nice race!  Really captures the spirit of competing WITH your peers and not against 'em.

             

            "New Bedford in March is where you go to see how you measure up against the toughest and deepest running community on planet earth (probably) outside the Great Rift Valley."

             

            At least you said 'probably'!  My boyz (and girls) in the USATF-PA would give you a run for your money.
