Added a couple of seconds so it would reflect my chip time. I knew I had a PR in the bag the whole time! My half split was 2:02:27 so nice negative splits again this year.
The temperature was in the upper 30's or low 40's up at the start. The weather history shows Cedar City (elevation 5840) at 23 and St. George (end of the course) at 46. Veyo (mile 8) has a weather station but no history. There was a gusty north wind, and since the course runs north to south, that worked out!
Took Honey Stinger gels at 1:15, 2:00, 2:45 & 3:30, which worked great! Pulled out my iPod sometime after Veyo. I definitely had it going when I flew down miles 15 & 16. 57 degrees when I finished!
The evening before, parked my car after the pasta dinner, on 500 East and walked back to the Ramada. That worked well because they only had a shuttle before the race.
