Lieutenant Lucerne Fine to about half way, slowed a bit from there, then slowed even more from 20 miles. Walked from 23.5 to 25.5, my legs didn't want to run, and there was no point risking an injury. Managed to slowly run the last bit. Two marathons in two weeks - probably about 3 miles too far for me.
