IT WENT GREAT.
My overall goal was to finish in less than 2:50, which was a repeat of my goal from 2016 which I missed my just over three minutes.
The weather for the day was awesome. Very calm, neutral wind and the temperature (61 degrees with a 3MPH wind out of the south, which happened to be back to the beach) was ideal for a high level of exertion. By 9:50 at the start of the run it had only climbed to 66 degrees with a 4 MPH wind.
