Mikkey - Great race buddy! You always know your fitness so well and race with disciplined pacing. Hope your nose is OK and you can enjoy Spain for a while.
Thanks! It was a bit of a blur as my nose isn’t sore, but it was bleeding when I got up and I’ve got a couple of red patches on my face now. I probably got over confident with the pacing as I felt great in the first half. But the wind really picked up and I just didn’t have the legs/endurance to push through. Time for some tapas.

Mikkey - will comment shortly.
The CIM Boys looking good. RP is leading the pack right now, but all 3 ran their first 5k nice and slow and have picked it up into the 15k. All 3 tracking for sub 3.

RP was on track for 2:56 at 30km, CK 2:59, Cal 3:01. CK appears to be pacing it beautifully and hopefully will have a strong finish. RP just running an amazing race if he can hold that. Slight slowdown from Cal on the last split. I guess our next update will be 40km so it's possible a lot could have changed. Hopefully all we see is a speed up from CK and Cal.

RP just came through the 40K right on pace! He is going to PR here and has a decent shot at going 2:55:XX. Crazy!
RP in a complete beast mode. That guy is an endurance monster!
RP through 40km and still on track for 2:56!
What a race by RP: faster all the way.
Not sure, but looks like Cal is catching up to Keen. They might finish pretty close.
RP in beast mode, if his PR is 2h59 he's going for a massive break through
Cal is through 40k in 2h53 on pace for 3h02
A bit nervous for CK, not through 40km. Cal through and on target for a solid 3:02
RP 2:56:07. Woahhh
