This was a tough race due to the hills, I give a big shout out to those who due the full marathon. The weather was perfect. I saw a lot of fellow MMTCs and hung with Team Fight before the race.
I didn't care for the race start, while there were supposed to be corrals, no one seemed to pay attention. So for the first 3 miles I had to avoid people (including walkers who started at the front of the corral.) But after that the goal was to maintain my pace and finish. I wanted to stay low 8-high 7, I ended up being a little less low 8.
