Overall the race went pretty well. I beat my PR by a whole 3 seconds! But it is still a new PR. My goal is to always improve on my time, so I accomplished that.

I was worried about my knee and my training. I was able to run the distance, and I placed 4th in my age division. I still need to focus a lot  more on my training. I was hoping that my knee would hold up. I didn't feel any pain until about mile 2.4ish (15:35). I have run through the pain and will continue to do so, but I do need to take time to rest after the full. My right ankle also started to hurt around mile 8, but that pain went away by mile 11. Im sure that pain was from subconciously changing my form to protect my knee.

There was a guy that passed me with about .5 miles to go, and I had to beat him. I ended up passing him around the 13 mile mark, he was very mad. Sorry.

I tested my theory that I need to stop eating/drinking milk in large quantities. It had been a couple of weeks since I ate a bowl of cereal on a day that I ran, today I did. I had to stop after 2 miles and find a bathroom (elk ridge park). Luckily it was a nice flushable toilet. Now I know for future reference that there is a good toilet near the routes that I run. Hopefully I won't have to use it, Goodbye Cereal  :(

I ran really slow. This was my first run since the half on saturday, so I didnt want to push it hard at all. My knee is still hurting, and has been since July 24th. Im not sure what I need to do besides rest, but thats not really an option with less than 3 weeks untill the marathon.
