site. That was a nice little stat that says all that needs to be said about the last 12K of the marathon. I was never passed.
I didn't run a negative split. The first half included hills and led to a speedy first half. After the 11 mile mark, it was basically flat or uphill. The second half, after I caught up to the pacer, I slowed down to 4:38s for most of the rest of the race.
First half: 1:35:17
Second half: 1:37:05
The last 12K 56:41
The 30K split: 2:16:12 (gun time, I think).
