    Thanks @katharmonic

    I was pretty much ahead of the 2:20 pacer from the get go. I may have been with the 2:10 pacer for a while, but when I'm in the zone, I don't notice the other runners that much. I pushed really hard, especially for a first HM, but that's how I do things...I'm a stubborn Finn who keeps at things. I have 11 weeks until my next HM, and I plan on playing around with fueling and remembering meds so I can do better. Weather will be 10-15 degrees cooler at that one, so that will help too.

    2:15:40 Garmin time. Chip time could be faster because I was so wasted I didn't stop the Garmin until after finish
    WTG, brother!

    @9voice9 Good Luck, how was the cheese cake btw?
    Awesome - never had a bad one from Cheesecake Factory. There continue to be rumors about one coming to middle Georgia. That would scare me to death! They have a great (and HIGH-CALORIE!) menu - and it's hard to stay away....

    @MNLittleFinn first HM - Great result, like all people who step up to a HM distance it is a learning experience.
    Take the lessons and move on.

    @9voice9 Great results for a 10K with that many people, my biggest ever race had about 500 people in it and there was always someone in my sights so I can't imagine that many people on a course - I would expect lots of time lost due to dodging crowds and traffic.

    I always pretend that I am a car on a highway, keep to the right of centerline, move left to pass and then move back to the right. With that many people I can't picture moving around.

    @9voice9 Damn that's a huge race. Biggest race we have around here doesn't even come close and it's a marathon. Congratulations

    @MNLittleFinn Those last miles seem though. Pretty good time considering you had to walk. Congratulations
