Comments:

Went out under pace and helf on to turn around. Somewhat slower on the way back. When I felt my pace was struggling I tried to walk some to gather it back in. Strong finish the last .5 mile.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe pace my start a little slower. I'd like to have a better last three miles.
Post race
Warm down:

Stetching and ate soup, bread and some cookies.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I trained for the 9:00 mile pace. My goal was a sub 2:00 hour so to come in a 1:57:49 is a plus.

Fantastic!  At first I was worried because your overall time says 9 hours!  But obviously that's  typo.   Nicely done reaching your goal.
