  • 09m 47s  min/mile

It was a good run, but I bonked at mile 11.5 and had to walk for 5 minutes or so. Not sure if it was hydration or calories, though I suspect it was both.
What would you do differently?:

Better nutrition leading up to the race and better during. Should have worn the fuel belt so I could skip most of the water tents.

Warm down:
