Now I know why I hate this stoopid course. It's definitely long. Confirmed by the Kenyan dudes (who were really nice) who finished 2-3. "The third mile man, it keep going and going, and I say, when is it over?"
Went out in 5:20 (downhill, makes sense). Mile 2 in 5:50 (two hills, also makes sense). Then the last mile and a bit doesn't make any sense for the pace I know I was going. It weren't no stinkin' 7:10 1.1 miles. Whatever. Shouldn't make excuses I suppose. Still 7 overall and 1 AG. So, I'll chalk it up to another race, another day. And only run USATF certified courses if I care about "real" PRs.
ps. this blows.
pps. Will Sanders winning in 16:16?! Yeah, this was long (guy hasn't run over 15:15 ever).
