One of these days I will get smart and not run this race every year, but for some reason I just keep signing up for it. I guess I enjoy the pain. So, running into a head wind and trying to keep up with people that are faster than me didn't seem to work for me this time. I did really good for the first half and then had nothing left in the second. I finished in 2:08, not as fast as I wanted but it is what it is. I guess I have learned my lesson and should stick with slow and steady and not run into the wind!
