Well the sun was actually shining when this thing started for about 5 minutes. You could see the impending doom looking down South Fork toward Pine View. Started off easy running with Ben, Brandon, and Dave. After about a mile or so I eased into an nice sustainable pace. The rain started about 2 miles in and just got worse for the race. I felt really good coming out of South Fork, at the Half Marathon split and running up the hill outside of Eden. As soon as I was at the top of the hill there was wind in my face and the rain seemed to pick up, that was hard to do but it did. Somewhere between here and the spillway I felt my legs cool down and I couldn't get them to warm back up.
I was able to keep my pace through 22 miles or so then my legs just started locking up. So from here on in I was running/walking. BUMMER!!! I really think I could have held my pace and come in around 4:15 because I felt really good until my legs got cold. But I finished and I'm happy that I was able to push myself to the end.
