Short: I ran personal best 3:14:55 marathon, by going by effort insread of gps watch, didn't want to know my pace on downhills if I was going fast.
Long: I had petty good week, with 2:24 hilly Stu's 30 part of high intensity and high mileage week. It gave me confidence that I could do sub 3:20 on a course playing to my strengths. Two Rivers marathon is mostly downhill fo 12 mi, then flatish out and back. The back part was with strong tail winds. There were about 24 ahead of me at turnaround when I cranked up a notch after being a little conservative in head winds. Passed at least 10 to finsh 13th overall out of 114 finishers. I was a little surprised to see sub 3:15 while I was expecting under 3:20. Either I put a lot in the bank on downhills, which comes easy for me or the course was a little short.
