This felt good except for carrying the camel back that weighed about 4 lbs. Way too much. Didn't realize there would be some water stops along the way. Legs a little heavy at first, but felt really good in the last few miles. I took GU at about 5m and again at about 8.5 miles. Succeed at 6m I think. These shoes were good. I had them on with toe socks and darn tough, black lulu running skirt and my new ARS shirt. That shirt was great. MC bra caused a lot of bad chafing. Will probably wear my black champion in the race unless it is less humid.
