    3:03:01 - had pace until mile 20, then comprehensively blew up.

     

    Still a five minute PR and a good race. Onto the next!

     

    (Weather was great until I started cracking, at which point the wind picked up.)

      Congrats on the PR, even if it's not what you wanted.  And how nice of the wind to kick up at an inopportune moment.

      Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

       

      And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

        Congrats on the PR Captain; you're getting close and should be able to break 3 next time around.
