30-40 mph winds dictated interval pace. 2nd half of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd intervals all into a headwind. Looking like it will be windy through the race as well. Good news is wind direction should have a tailwind second half of the marathon

Due to wet soggy conditions on the offroad portion of the course I didn't even try to run a PR. There were 3 other guys I could run with so I decided to run with them and see if I could win. Really windy. I knew I didn't want to take off and pull them through the wind, so I tried to start slow. A kid who runs mostly 5k's took off. I tried to sit back and let someone else chase him but the other 2 guys sat on me. Rather than letting the kid run off I closed the gap we let open in the first 1/4 mile before he got to far out. I just stayed on his heels until we hit a turn around (after 3 miles). At the turn around one of the guys behind me took to the front. I went with him and the kid and other guy dropped back. I let him dictate the pace which I shouldn't have done. When he took over I should have made him work the last 5k instead of letting him run his pace. Mile 5 there's a slight uphill where I made a move hoping he'd drop, but he didn't. 1/4 mile later at another slight hill I let a gap open up. Then I was done. Ran a good race all things considered. One of these days I'd like to be in sprinting shape haha
