I must confess that it was a very fun day, in a race situation yet not feeling the need to press or accelerate. We cracked the 2:30 barrier, which was a goal of brother-in-law. And despite the slower pace (just over 11:00 per mile) , I managed to snag an age group trophy.
In all honesty, this was more a testament to the dearth of 60+ runners than to my speed, but I'll take it anyway with pride:
Finishers' medal plus 60-64 age group 3rd place trophy
