- i started off a bit fast -- i was running in a pack with devra, tee, kassi, emily, and rachelle, and i wanted to stay with them as long as i could (it was go out hard or run alone). i knew i was pressing the pace too much, but this course is forgiving, so i went with it. i stayed with the group through sugarhouse park, and then i dropped back on 1700 east (mile 6).
- i felt stronger today, and my legs and pace held up much better than they did at striders two weeks ago (but that is mostly because the slc course is easier -- especially the second half).
- the new and improved finish at liberty park was awesome.
- i'm on a roll with 4th place finishes this year.
