Comments:

After 18k stopped for 2 minutes and walked and eat dried fruits. Turns out in this race not helped very much. I wasn't hungry, I just needed a break.

First 14k comfortable.

Last 1k when I saw the sponsor commercials thought it was a finnish line, but it wasnt. I wouldn't speed up if I knew that. Turns out I had some 500m left or so.

OVERALL: I am very satisfied with my performance as I broke my record time by one minute.
What would you do differently?:

Slower pace from 14-18k.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Course unfarmiliarity.

Event comments:

Lots of runners and running holiday for this town. Good event, but (other) fellow-runners who experienced this event before clearly noticed that this event (due to goodies bag, best results and etc.) was way bellow the last years' impressions.

Lots of volunteers. My impression that organzation was ok, but should have been way better. On the medal there is a copyright mistake, no year indicated at all.
