Way better than I expected.....Splits were: 6:08, 6:11, 6:03, 5:56, 5:47, 5:45, 5:52, 6:21, 6:01, 6:10, 6:17, 6:21, 6:07, 0:55

I have not recovered well from the marathon four weeks ago and didn't really want to make the trek down to run this race, but it was worth it to knock out one of the races for the runner's series.  My training has been spotty since the marathon.  Legs have not responded well to much of anything lately and I've had some aches and pains that got me a little worried.  Apparently this all added up to a good race for me.  In all reality I was expecting to come in somewhere around 1:24-1:25.  I started out very conservatively and ran the first mile with Rachelle, who I knew I wouldn't be able to stick with today and she gradually coasted away.  Never got too uncomfortable in the first 7 or 8 miles and then once the rollers and flatter portion of the race came I just tried to stay in as good a rhthem as I could. Overall a very good race for me as this is only the second time I've ever broken the 1:20 barrier, despite all the aided courses I run.  I'm sure this race will leave me quite sore for several days.  Looking forward to dialing things back for a bit and getting healthy and then ramping things back up.

AM 4 easy on the TM in Bozeman.  Left heel hurt for about a quarter of a mile, and it was a minor pain.  Felt much better than yesterday's run.

AM 10.55 at 8:30 pace with Mark.  Went up to the Ivory tennis place and back.  Not too cold on the way out, but the wind picked up and made it really cold on the way back.
