30F, snowing, but roads merely wet. Saw Phil, George & Ken Sr in the pens before the start, but didn't see them again after the gun went off. Mile splits:
613 (hr=163) felt good, ran outside line and had little problem with crowds
728 (hr=163) slower than expected on hill. Hill didn't seem to bother me at all but I didn't want to push it here either - hr right in line.
629 (hr=158) cresting the hill, opened up stride a bit, but not pushing super hard - passing more people than were passing me.
636 (hr=158) Deb L caught up with me in here, felt pretty good but trying to not overdo it. Chatted w/ Deb a bit. In retrospect, the chatting with Deb was easy, so perhaps I wasn't pushing as hard as I should have been. She gradually pulled away by 20-30m.
436 (hr=165) last 3/4 of a mile, picked up pace once the turn onto main street was in view, gained on Deb and passed her on the corner of Main street. Opened up the stride on the gentle downslope and really pushed the last 100m up slight grade to finish. If my math is right my pace for the last works out to 6:14 per mile - almost as good as my first mile.
Quite fun - I just may have to make this an annual end of year thing. Scott finished somewhere ahead of me, not sure where everyone else finished except for Deb about 8s back. I had to catch the bus and head back to work,,,
Postscript (11/25) - finished 335th of 7626 official finishers.(70th M40-49) That puts me in the top 5% - I'm happy with that. Scott finished 125th, 3 minutes ahead of me - damn he's fast....
