San Diego Rock N Roll Marathon

This race report is pretty simple:

Felt good at the start.
10 Km split: 46:04 (7:25 pace)
Half marathon split: 1:42:39 (7:50 overall pace)
Wheels started to come off.
21 Mile split: 3:01:30 (8:38 overall pace)
Wheels completely off.
Where am I?
Finish time: 4:09:50 (9:32 overall pace)

I saw a t-shirt which summed up the day very well:
"The marathon can humble you." - Bill Rodgers

wow --Scott -lucky you to be out in CA on vacation, in the foothills and running the Rock n Roll marathon --
I ran the inagural (sp) race in 1998...I ran 3:16 (back when I only raced marathons)-I loved it...went with Fred's team. The course was flat, scenic, the weather perfect..a touch hot. I don't think you need to worry about a 'training marathon' time...:))
