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

The buses were kind of slow getting up the canyon for this one, so things were a little delayed. As we milled around at the starting line, somebody blew an airhorn which apparently was the go signal and after a few seconds we all figured it out and went. The first 1.5 miles of this one are brutal downhill, I almost broke my mile record without even trying (missed it by 1 second) at 4:35. Second mile hits flatter stuff, got a 5:02. I was passed in the second mile by Skylar but he seemed a little irregular, like he was trying to find a pace. I told Justin as he passed me like a metronome in mile 4 to go get him :) Things were pretty warm but I managed to keep them in sight until mile 7, then I was just getting way too hot and the legs felt dead from the first two miles. I think I have to keep it over 4:50 to go the distance.

Anyway after mile 7 I just decided to relax because it was so hot and there was nobody even close. I walked all the aid stations and enjoyed the run through the neighborhoods, then suddenly the high school was right there and I boogied in for third overall. Not the greatest time but I'll be a little more conservative at the start next time.

It was hot hot hot today, 78 at the start. I lost about 5 seconds per mile except the last one where I died and got 25 seconds slower. Splits were 4:55 (in front for a tiny time), 5:21 (got passed by Connor here, finally got to meet him for a 4 seconds), 5:48 (small uphill), 5:38 (back to my old self on South Temple), 5:51 (uh oh), 6:14 (dying on the uphill). Smoked the masters and would have gotten the 30 year old divisions too except that I couldn't quite catch Iron Wolf at the end. Too cool if that is his real name :)
