Ran with 3:45 pace group. Pacer Rich from marathon pacing took us out fast ( intentionally ) so that we had time to give back on the hills late in the race. At the base of Sand Run we were about 2:30 ahead. By Market street we were close to being on pace to 30 seconds ahead.
I fell a little back of the pace group between 21 and Stan Hywet. I caught up but the fell a little further behind climbing Portage Path. Once on Market I caught and passed Rich ( using the downhill ) and finished about 30 seconds ahead of him,
