Everything went right today. I said I was going to run 6:40s to start out, but 6:30ish felt "easy". Mile 3 was ridiculously hilly, so I slowed a bit there. But then I picked it back up in the last half of the race and never felt overwhelmed. I felt like I was running my best but not too hard. At the 6 mile mark, Emily Ryan was just ahead of me, so I went into 400m sprint mode to pass her. It hurt quite a bit then, but it felt great to finally finish ahead of her.
Of course, Greg Eubanks still finished ahead of me in our age group.
