Executive summary: 2:39:03, 8th overall, 1st master, $500, broke my own master's course record from last year. This was a miracle run - with Mary's birth I was not sure I was going to run at all, but on Tuesday Sarah and I talked about it and she said she was recovering well and could handle the household with the help of the kids, so I made the arrangements. I was not expecting much, just hoped to finish at all and maybe a little better than embarassing, but after a little tempo run on Tuesday with Benjamin I knew that at least the first half would give me more than that, and just hoped not to completely blow up in the second. I ended up doing 1:15:35/1:23:28, last 10 K in 41:01, more positive that usual, through the first half I felt good enough that if you had asked me what I was headed for with normal endurance I would have said 2:35, but I knew I would have to pay for my lack of 10 mile tempos at the end of 20 in the second half. At that point I just hoped to do a little better than my last year's time, but ended up doing more that a little better.
