Event comments:

This year the corrals seemed spread out better or maybe I was starting in a better corral based on my ability. I wanted to beat last years time, 1:48:37...So I ran out pretty hard. I was able to keep that up until about mile 6 or 7...but instead of really slipping to a comfortable pace, I just kept pushing. My last few miles were definitely slower than the first, but they weren't that much slower...So I took over 2 min off my time...a PR!!!!

I love this race and the eye candy never ever disappoints.
