Dam to Dam '11

57:31 for the first 10K, 56:27 for the second 10K for a total of 1:53:58.  (Average 9:10 splits).
247 of 596 in Men 30-34, 1378 of 3276 overall Men. 
I was very happy to be in the upper half of my age bracket and to cut four minutes off my time from last year.
And after looking at the splits, I was surprised with how consistent we were.  If you through out mile 1 (which you can't do much about due to the crush of people on the dam) we were didn't stray from our average by more than 13 seconds the whole way: 1=10:01, 2=9:09, 3=9:10, 4&5=18:10 (9:05 avg), 6=8:57, 7=9:22, 8=9:13, 9=9:10, 10=9:05, 11=9:19, 12=9:04.
This picture shows how I felt at about mile 11.
