“Man…I think a lot of people don’t realize how hot this race is going to be. A lot of these people are going to be struggling in the second half of this race.”

–Big Ben at ~ mile 8

We thought we were running at about the right pace, and I finished the race very happy with what I’d done that day.

I got a chance to break down the data a little last night.

I passed 195 people on the second half of the course–finished ahead of 195 people that made it to 13.1 faster than me. I was passed by two people. One of them was the wise man who spoke the words above.

Not patting myself on the back for the performance, but for the great job we did pacing. I really think 4:05:13 was all I had that day.

Good feeling!
