Took the day off from running.  Family time after services, brunch etc.  Nice weather to just sit on the porch and enjoy the day.

Checked the box for this one which has been on my list for a number of years.   Weather was cool-ish in the upper 60's with a breeze and high humidity.  Organization was decent for such a large race.  They announced 35,000 participants at the start.   

This was a bit more difficult for me than it looked on paper.  The climb on the bridge was about 1.5 miles and I tried to keep my effort even and execute a plan to make up time on the descent.  I seemed to do that reasonably well, but was really pushing my HR limits and slowed a little bit in the last mile or so.  6:52, 7:14, 7:32, 6:34, 6:50, 7:15, and 6:41 for the last .2 miles.  I did have a negative split - though I think that's to be expected where the hill is in the first half of the race and the second half has the downhill.  Satisfied with the effort, time notwithstanding.
