Married, three kids, have a problem with going out too fast in races but it's too fun to quit

Third race in three weeks, but I figured I would do OK because I felt good all week. Curtis came so i was motivated, and I didn't realize it at first but Pepi was there. I wish I had realized it earlier. The race started and all three of us went out at the customary speed, but Curtis quickly dropped back a little because he didn't want to thrash himself before St George. But Pepi stayed right with me for the first mile (4:55) and started to pull ahead as I was unwilling to trash myself so early. I stayed pretty constant (5:06, 5:09, 5:04, 5:10) then again on the milder hill (5:18, 5:17) then a little less steep (5:34, 5:27). But then I just didn't care as much as I should have. Pepi had pulled to 200 meters and Curtis was not visible and I was sick of pushing it so I just let back a little (5:59). To my surprise, Pepi did too! We both sort of phoned it in for the last three miled (6:19, 6:17, 6:13). But it was only then that I realized who it was. Had I known earlier, I would have hung up the phone. Also he got a flower arrangement made entirely of fruit. I really need to stop phoning it in at the end :)  But 2nd overall was cool and I almost caught the last guy I know of who is my age or older and faster than me. Except Curtis.
