17:33, 5:30 1st mile (only split, no watch), close to Post Mayan Apocalypse best.

Quite hot and humid (around 75degrees/71 dew point), Rick Kenah warned us that it was not a day for PRs. I felt ok while I was running, but was a little 2013 tourderunish after I finished. Tucked in behind the top Atlanta Track club women at the start who I figured would be shooting for low 17s. I ran with three of them until the first mile: (Morgan, who smoked a 17:07 in the Hawks 5k, Janel who ran 17:18 at the ATC 5k and Lauren Sara who I didn't know anything about).

I was struggling to stay with them and at about the mile I stupidly let them go and they were probably 5 seconds up on me. I say stupid because I never really made myself hurt after I lost contact. Despite getting dropped by the women, I still passed 2 or 3 guys in the second mile and I was closing in on a big pack of about 5. One of those guys was Bo Brewer, who I have a legit rivalry with at this point.

Our last 3 races: Bo by 3 seconds, me by 20 seconds, me by 1 second.

Morgan starts to fade and I catch up to her right at 2miles and we start to work together. I'm now wishing that I knew these streets better because I have absolutely no idea how close to the finish we are. Suddenly, the stadium appears and I start to kick, dropping Morgan and passing Bo. The last 400meters or so are a little goofy as we make some sharp turns into the stadium and then run out onto the outfield. I was a bit surprised to see 17:30 as I felt like I really let my effort down and was expecting it to be over 18.

17:33 for me 17:37 for Bo, 17:41 for Morgan. (Lauren:17:00, Janel 17:15). Winning time for guys was 15:15 by Nathan Haskins who wins everything here.
 

I have been a little quiet since the marathon because I was feeling slightly off, last few weeks I've been much better. Still just trying to survive the summer here though.
