Hot, mid 70s, no idea of dew point. Went out controlled, hitting the first K right at 4 minutes, catching a group that went out ahead of me. There's a split at the 2k point for those running the 5k. Everybody ahead of me and with me turned left while I went straight. Completely alone for 8k on a hot, sunny road. Kept the splits relatively even throughout, and crossed ahead of my goal of sub 40 for a 7 second PR and second ever road race victory.
Small race, slow winning time, but 2nd and 3rd were nearly 2 minutes behind, so I didn't get the chance to test my response to competition. Daniels equates it to a 1:28:xx half and 3:04:xx full, obviously taken with a grain of salt. I've made progress, but long way to go in the next 11 weeks. Got an awesome sleeveless tech t-shirt for winning.
