(Garmin finish time 45:09.36. Time edited to reflect official results)
Felt good out there, pushing my pace faster than I should have or would have on a training tempo run (a 6 mile tempo run was scheduled for today, with 1.5-3 mile warm-up and cool down). But this was a race, and I wanted to push it. Glad to get a PR by nearly 2 minutes.
Pretty flat course, ran alone most of the time. Felt good in terms of hydration and stomach (having gone to the bathroom several times before the race). Didn't sleep great - less than six hours, and yesterday we drove nearly 12 hours from Philly back home. But overall, felt good, especially considering that I wasn't really training for this race or trying to max out on this race.
After the marathon, perhaps I should truly train for a few 10Ks. Would be fun to see what I can do if I really train for this distance.
