My prediction for this race was 35:00, based on the couple of workouts and races that I had leading up to it. So clearly I destroyed my expectations.

My plan was to start pretty conservatively (5:30ish pace) for the first two downhill miles and then try to keep the remaining miles sub 6. First mile in 5:15 and it felt pretty easy. In the second mile, I picked found a nice rhythm on 500S that felt pretty sustainable. Was shocked to see that the second mile was 5:16. I tried to pick up the effort when i turned onto 1300E but it was just not happening. However, this was still good enough for a 5:32 mile 3.

Mile 4 was my worst mile (according to the course tool) as I was really just counting down the blocks until I was done with the downhill. I was really suffering here, but I wasn't getting passed and was occasionally picking people off. Another 5:31 mile for mile 4.

Making the turn onto 200E I could see the end of the downhill which was actually a relief and I picked up my intensity. Ran 5:25 for mile 5 (still aided). Then at about mile 5 I picked off Dave Taylor and then Sasha who latched on briefly. I ran a pretty strong last mile (7:02 for 1.2 5:46 pace).

Here's a table

After I was done, I ran up to Foothill to see the marathoners and then ran the last 10k of the course.
