OMG! I set a huge PR! I'm so amazed. I was skeptical when, around the 2.5k mark when I calculated that I could finish in about 1:08, and was sure that I was doing the math wrong. Then, when I hit the 5k mark at exactly 34:00, I was shocked.

I pushed harder for the last half, thinking I was probably slowing down, and I really wanted to come in under 1:10, and closer to 1:08. Well, when I got to the finish, and say 1:07, I nearly choked. I thought, 'that's just a mistake.' But then I looked at my watch.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. This was a perfect race.
Post race
Warm down:

Went immediately to the green houses, as I had to pee very badly.

Then I just walked around a bit. I could feel my legs getting sore and I wanted to walk em out a bit.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing that I know of.

Event comments:

Course: Nice, beautiful course, with rolling hills (and one long hill at the start/finish). Two aid stations on the out and back course, so we got water 4 times.
