    Great job! Sick time. How'd it feel? That's the highest I've seen your HR creep up to at the end but even still, for that pace, that's awesome. What are your thoughts on this goal?!

    Thanks guys! I hadn't trained many back to back 6:00 min / miles so after 8 miles it became pretty hard to maintain the pace

    @Scott - at mile 8 to 10 I slacked off. At that point there was a 20+ miles an hour head wind, all the 5 hour+ marathoners were on the same course so lots of zigzagging, I choked on water at an aid station, etc. Many excuses but I also learned a lot for next time. Ended up in 60th place out of 14251 so I’m happy with that

    Thanks Bill, HR creeped up much higher than I expected. My ‘resting’ HR before the race was 105 (compared to 40-ish normally) so the nerves came into play there as well. Mile 1-6 was fine, then it got though until mile 10. Then I was passed by the #1 female so the bike cops cleared the 5 hour+ marathoners out of the way for her (and me) so less Zigzagging the next mile orso. Back to the drawing board for Boston in 6 months.
