The course was consisted of a 6.55 mile out and back on the last 6.55 miles of the marathon course. It's supposedly a gradual incline to the turnaround point and then the opposite decline on the way back. I was running really strong on the way out and maybe a bit too fast, but I figured it was going to be slightly downhill on the way back so I let it go. The long hill around mile 9 took it out of me and I walked a few aid stations. After that I never recovered my pace and I ended up finishing 2:17 slower that my PR at PF Changs a month ago. Really not too bad considering this is a much more challenging course.
What would you do differently?:

Hold back just a bit on the way out next time and force myself to push it more toward the end.

Event comments:

Overall a good run. My wife ran the 10k at this one so we just had to get in the car and head home to pick up the kids.
