this run killed me.  I felt very sick when I got home, couldn't eat, I though I was coming down with the flu.  I'm writing this the day after, I feel pretty good now.

PR'd by 9 seconds.  I'me excited about this.  I had no reason to believe I had a PR in me based on my 5 and 10k performance.  I was frustrated about my 5 and 10k times because I thought my training wasn't a good as I thought it was.  This race is a real confindence booster for me.  I thought my age was outpacing my training and I was now on the inevitable downward slope. Maybe not?

Racing with Paul had a lot to do with my performance, we were together the whole way and I was inspired to hang with him.

This is one of my best races, I felt strong during the whole race.  I've never felt this way before and I've never had a kick that was my fastest mile (extrapolated).  

I took a GU at the halfway point, I've never done this before at this distance, I think it helped a lot.  (Thanks Paul, great advice)
