I made it to 30k (3:04 pace) feeling very confident and made it to 35k feeling I was in a race, but then the previous two and a half hours of work came apart like a snapping achilles tendon, which meant meant by 37k that I had to walk almost all of the way to the finish (3:33). The course was fairly hilly and very windy, especially from 10k-20k and 30k-40k, and I clearly wasn't as fit as I had been, so I was fine with running a strong race all the way to the finish. I almost made it, but as the results show, almost means nothing. The injury is actually pretty bad, and I hope I'll be healthy after a couple of weeks off.

I'm just glad it's over.
