Great race, felt strong until mile 5, when I got overheated. Dialed it back quite a bit and had a little kick left at the end. Nice race overall.
What would you do differently?:

Pleased with the run, despite the heat. I'm a slow runner and have not been running much due to some IT band issues.

Performance: Good
Course: Starts out in Utica, you run down a hill for the first .75 of the race. It's hard not to go out too fast. Then a flat crushed limestone bike trail along a canal, and up into utica again.
Keeping cool Below average Drinking Just right
