Went very well.. Stuck to the game plan and felt good throughout. Controlled and consistant miles through 10, 6:58, 7:00, 6:57, 6:49, 6:53, 7:00, 6:58, 6:57, 6:57, 6:57.. (these 10 felt great, effortless)then took the HR up a bit for the last 5k, 6:42, 6:32, 6:36.. But the funny thing is the last 5k was very easy.. It felt like I could have went 10-15 seconds faster without any problem... Ran with Jon and Mike from start to finish. Very happy with the effort as it wasn't an all out red-line from the start kind of race for me.
There were more hills than I anticipated, but it really wasn't an issue... For an inagural race, it was top notch and well managed. I don't think they'll have any problem selling out again.
Oh yeah.. my time was 1:29:49.
