1st Half 1:36:00
2nd Half 1:35:00
  • 7:00AM start on the Appalachian State track
  • Low 60s at the start, calm
  • Was in 20th place or so after a couple of miles...and then climbing started
  • Picked up a few spots and got hooked in with 24 year old John who ran GFM 06 in a 3:03.
  • We clicked along and were in about 10 place at the half
  • Worked hard through 17, then really worked from 20 to 26 (and had alot of fun with it)
  • Ran 1 minute negative split, unfortunately it was 1:36 / 135
  • Very happy with the performance, but really surprised that the time wasn't close to 3:00
