big cottonwood owie.  back and left hamstring hurting still especially in warm up.  tried to run the race (not as a pacer even though I was supposed to).  Kept at 7:30 pace and my leg was so bad after the first mile.  So tight and burning.  got to mile 6 after the two steepest miles and thought maybe now it is safe to pick it up.  NOPE 0.23 miles into it (I stopped my garmin when it happened) and I was gaining speed at 7:10 pace my hamstring felt like an elastic pulling until its almost breaking point then flinging back upon itself.  So painful it stopped me in my tracks.  I pulled over and knew I either get a ride down or hobble down.  I chose hobbling after walking to next aide station apparently around the corner.  WRapped in coban tightly I ran the race guarded and in pain but I made it. Cheering the whole way as many a runner passed me until I got to the end and I passed many a runner with words of encouragement.  So first part was 7:30 pace to 4.5 miles.  9:47 from then until mile 10 (according to Revel results site, pretty cool to see how your pace looks and this is when I stopped on side of road for five minutes and walked) and ended with 8:12 pace for last 5 K.  That was sure painful.  But I got a runner to hang with me and pick it up.  So it was worth it.  1:53:06.
