Very nice day for the race.  Temps at the top were around 40-45. I had a long sleeved shirt and that was probably just a little overdressed especially after we got out of the canyon.  The race started at about 6200 and dropped to about 4400.

Rode up to get on the buses with some good neighboors.  The headless horseman was there looking pretty cool on his horse at the starting line.

Miles 1-4.  5:52, 5:54, 6:08, 6:09.  I decided to go out agressive hoping that I had recovered from the SGM.  Everything felt pretty good.  I ran with Mike P. for this stretch. 

Miles 5-9.  6:24, 6:26, 6:31, 6:16, 6:38.  Just as mile 5 started I could tell my legs were fatiged.  Not tired from running hard but not recovered and worn down.  I was worried that they would give out near the end so I let up just a little off the gas pedal.

Miles 10-13.  7:12, 7:18, 7:20, 7:23, 0:43.   These are the miles that flatten out, but my legs started cramping.  I was forced to slowdow.  Mile 13 was the worst, my legs were really grabbing and I was just hopping they wouldn't go into full cramp mode.  I just survived but didn't get to finish the race like I was hoping to with some 6:30-6:40 miles. 

It was a fun race, a lot of people in costums.  I won my AD out of the 30 other runners and was 15 out of 1349 total.
