Very pleased with the execution, though the time was off by about 3:44 seconds ;). I went through one EFS Liquid Shot, and 8 oz. of 1.5 concentrate Infinite (Robb's silverman blend) and was just about perfect.

My "form" was great through 0-10 but then started to fall off a bit, but when I picked up the pace at mile 12, it all came right back even with the increased exertion.
What would you do differently?:

focus a bit more on pacing out of the chute!!! I know... very tough to do, but need to concentrate. Not like I just got off a bike on this one!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

FAT... still in the 220 range and need to really focus on dropping down to the 200 range... would make a HUGE difference...
