Comments:

Well I wanted 2:00 and I could almost see it. 34 degrees and rain doesn't make for a wonderful day but I still was within hollering distance of it so I cannot argue at all.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I felt good the whole time.
Post race
Warm down:

Got a couple pieces of pizza, got my mylar blanket and walked around trying not to freeze.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

rain and cold. Either alone would be fine, together they're not so much fun.

Event comments:

I like this race. Probably do it again next year and use it to keep up with where I am in training over the years.

I'm gonna find me a 1/2 mary that's at 40 degrees and NOT raining. Then we'll see about 2:00
Yeah, I was happy about this one. Took forever to thaw out, though.
