15ish mph winds. Not quite strong, but definitely a factor. Tailwind out, headwind back. Going back into the wind I had passed everyone and was all alone which was very tough mentally. I really did not feel good for about 40 miles until I hit the century mark in my fastest time ever and got a nice resurgence!

HR was rock steady at 170 for the first 23ish miles. Higher than I expected to run at, but was pleased to see it didn't move.
Hot (heat index over 100 I think), but aid stations were well stocked with ice to keep cool
