Listed as Paul M K in the results but I assure you that's me. Took home the W but time isn't impressive by any means. Wasn't expecting anything quick but was thinking 16:30 would be about right so that's kind of a bummer. Started off the race and it was pretty much instantly clear that I would take it. Started off a little slow but took over around 0.4mi in I'd say. Threw in a little surge to discourage anyone from following, and then it was the Paul show for the rest of the race. First mile 5:17, then I had a hard time pushing by myself for the next two, 5:32 and probably just a little faster on the next. Wasn't a certified course so long is a tiny possibility but I think it was just a lack of willingness to push myself unnecessarily. Wasn't as cool as I was hoping it would be at 8 and the air was thick from the rain, but more fair than unfair I think, at least compared to last time for sure. About 30s up by two miles and just under a minute up by the end. Plaque for the win!
Not super but I would hesitate to say I'm only in 16:50 shape. I'll be better on the next one.
