8:04 is when I looked at my clock, and that was my pace. I woke up a few times before that, but stayed in bed sleeping til 8:00. DeBoer canceled and too cold for the Beer tent is what Lisa said. PHEW!!! I just hung out at Alan's all day, and went to bed after that.
Race is the race, you know how I race. My first mile was 8:00 and it dropped steadily til about mile 7. Then I picked up the effort. I know I negative split that sucker, and that is saying something, because the hills are on the 2nd half. I will tell you one thing, I passed a ton of people on the 2nd half. There was one girl who was zooming too. I couldn't keep up with her, but I passed her with a mile left. I was surprised, cause she looked real strong. I got passed by a couple people with a mile left so they were strong strong. My calves gave me a bit of a problem starting at mile 13, but they held off. I started sucking my salt water at that point pretty steadily. :) bleh!!! :)
Most of Alan's people had a good day. A couple went out too fast, hopefully they will learn from it.
