Ran to Kiwanis park with the team, ran around there, came back. Getting ready for the race, probably won't run the next couple days because of the combination of school, interview prep and race tapering just makes it a little less effective.

What a great race. The conditions were great, and I think I paced that race almost perfectly. My mentality in the first half was to run about a 6:10 pace, and I came through the half in about 1:21:40. My mentality for the second half was 6 minutes or faster per mile, and I think I was able to do that fairly well. I was really happy with the way I finished the race, I passed a guy going down the final straightaway, and just had a powerful finish. I don't think anyone passed me after the first 6 miles or so, which is really encouraging, I love passing people the whole second half rather than the other way around. I was fortunate enough to win the division, and also be the second finisher from St. George, the first place guy was Aaron Metler, who is freaking fast and it may take a few years before I beat him. Anyway, it was just a fantastic race, I felt great about it and I'm just happy with running, such a fun sport. Also, I did have a traditional post race throw up, so some things just don't really change.
