Cheris picked Jackie and me up at my house at 3:50 am.  We drove to Eccles Stadium and got on the buses.  It was really warm in town.  It was a little cooler up the canyon.  The race started at 6:30.  It was my first time on this course and I really liked it.  I held back the first mile and tried to ease into my pace.  I passed Jackie at about mile 3.  I had a Gu a mile 4 and another around 9 or 10.  I carried my little bottle with Gatorade and sipped on that for the first 10 miles. It was a fun atmosphere running on the parade route.  There were tons of 5k people walking side by side.  That made it difficult to get around.  I did a lot of dodging the last 1.5 miles.  Overall it was a good race.  I finished the race and headed straight to the porta potties.  I'm glad I didn't have to waste time during the race.  My splits are 7:51, 7:37, 7:30, 7:32, 7:44, 7:33, 7:29, 7:48, 7:22, 8:04, 7:53, 7:42, 8:00 and 7:59 avg for .22.  Overall average pace 7:42.  I've lost about 5-6 lbs in the last month.  That's a lot for me.
