Awesome run. I had a plan in place and executed the plan to perfection which led to a nice race. The legs started hurting around Mile 9 but the breathing was always controlled and the HR was right where i wanted it. The two Gu were placed right (30 minutes and 1:10) and I never felt too tired.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing except next time I am going to do the whole 26.2!

Must do race for anyone! The backdrop and reason for this race alone makes it worthwhile.
