My goal was to beat my best time for the course, 24:19. I really wasn't feeling it at first, but after I finished the first mile in 7:37, including the big hill, I thought it might be possible to beat my course best. I held on to that pace for the second, flat mile, then some of the "usuals" started passing me. I kept them in my sights. Coming up PoH hill the second time I was really tired but fueled by all the people I was passing, including some of those that streaked by me in mile two. I hung in there and made up some ground on the woman that seems to always run near me in these races. I caught my breath coming down the big hill and prepared for the uphill finish. I sprinted up the hill, catching her and 4 or 5 others, beating my best time on this race. I'm very happy with this run. Once again, I failed to stop my watch at the finish. My official time was 23:41. The best thing about the race was my family surprising me at the finish line! Saw fellow DMers Mr Ralph and Julie P.
