Notes: It was hot Boston. Mile 3-6 - already over heated. Did 1:36:27 half and over 1:45: 34 for second half. Water every stop in and one on head. Salt pills every 5 miles. Gu every 5 miles. One fire hydrant at mile 17 - very cooling and soaking. Couldn't keep pace at end as heat got me. Day before was 80's, race day in 70's, then next day was 40's.
