Pre-race routine:

Breakfast and then the drive to Rochester. On my own for the trip up this morning.
Event warmup:

Stretched some and hit the john one more time in the War Memorial.
  • 1h 39m 33s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 36s  min/mile

I ran with my coach and a couple of his other athletes to start. Took off fairly quickly to put a little time in the bank while the course trended down hill. I hit the 10K mark at 44:5? which is an unofficial PR.

The hills started heading up Goodman to Highland Park, but still seemed to hold fairly strong. Dropped one mile over 8 min pace, but barely and was able to pick it right back up. Even the cemetery wasn't too bad. Last couple of miles was driven by knowing how close I was going to be to breaking 1:40. I knew it was going to be close.
Headed down the stretch and saw I had it made, but kicked it hard anyways. New PR by over 5 minutes on the same course as the last HM PR!!! Couldn't be happier with my run training as this was done the day after a 4 hour brick.
What would you do differently?:

Not a thing!!

Warm down:

I waited for my niece to finish. Met up with my sister and BIL following her in, she had a great race too!!

Event comments:

This race is well run and a lot of fun. I have done all four of them!
