Cool, fast course. Threatened rain but held off until after the event. Small field so was able to get a good position near the front. Wasn't held up at all. Ran in typical fashion, fast start (6:16) first mile and held on (6:54/6:52) for the last two miles. Sucked wind the whole way. Side stitch after 2 miles and left shoe untied after 2.25 miles.
