It was a tale of two halves. I ran the first 6.55 miles in 44:19 for a 6:45/mile pace. The 2nd half I was tired and slowed down to a 7:23/mile pace for 48:26. Usually, I have some extra energy left for a faster finish, but not in this race. Beyond the finishing time, I love this race because I always see lots of friends and family.
