Grid A nice race up until the last two miles where a combination of hill and headwind made for a nasty finish.  I was aiming for something around the 2:10 mark but, without feeling too comfortable at any point, I was running nine minute miles or thereabouts.  By three-quarter distance I was pretty sure that a sustained effort and fast last mile would see me under 2 hours by a clear minute or two.  In the end, the aforementioned hill and wind took all the wind out of my sails and the sub-2 finish ended up being a bit too close for comfort.  Looking at the splits, I didn't lose much time in that horrible section and I'm pretty encouraged by that.  Felt like crap at the end, but a good solid run with a very encouraging time.
