Goal was to average an 8:30 pace. I pretty much fell apart at miles 14-15, although I can't remember why that particular part was so bad. I thought I could salvage a sub-4 until the 4:00 pace group passed me at mile 23, and I considered the race done at that point. The rest of the way was a combination walk-run that I categorized as a "group run". A "race" it was NOT.
