Good easy run. Wanted to pace myself at 9:40 to finish until 1 hour for the race. Plan was to be around that for first 3-4 miles, which I was. Mile 5 was uphill on Piccard, which was a little harder than i thought. Last stretch thought i had 1/10th mile to go, when a spectator yelled out, 1/4 mile to go. That deflated me, and I slacked off. I was hurting, and maxed out on heart rate. That probably cost me 15 seconds, as well as stopping to fix my stupid shoe laces.
However, according to my garmin, the course was a little long.
What would you do differently?:

Not tie shoes, and not listen to spectators.
Post race
Warm down:

walked around, ate some food and drank

What limited your ability to perform faster:

should have had a slightly faster pace early on, rather than worrying about saving something for last mile.

Event comments:

Well run race. Lots of course support and good food at the end. Will return next year.
