Wet and cold (52F) race. It was raining the whole time; there were puddles all over; impossible to run around; this happens when it is really raining.

Only little warm up (dynamic stretching)

I used this run MP and joined in with the 1:45 pace team;  it was difficult to catch up at the beginning, maybe because i did not have an easy run before the race and it was cold and i got up early; course is a little bit hilly; rolling hills but not too bad; after 8 miles I started to race faster; i did negative splits instead of the last uphill mile; again,  the last .20 mile segment i ran in sub 6 min/mile.

overall great experience as i tried out the shuttle service, an aspect that is also important for St. George Marathon.

Great race and great place
