Personal:

I retired from the Army after 26 years of service in 2010.  I moved home to Arizona.  My wife and I are empty nesters.  In 2016 I had stents placed in my heart after discovering coronary artery disease.  Since early 2016 I have lost 30 lbs and got in much better shape.  August 2017 I retired again. We served a mission to Mexico from October 2017 until April 2019.

total time 1:51:26.  since I have been dealing with lots of soreness I wasn't really sure about this run.  I run the Murdock canal trail which was flatter and a bit lower in altitude. I had felt better but I deliberately ran the first bit at 9:45 pace ( 3 minutes) and then gradually sped up.  I realized how good I was feeling and decided that I would run a tempo from 5.5 miles to 9 miles and then slow again.  It went pretty well...splits 9:24, 9:16, 9:14, 9:13, 9:18, 9:01, 8:56, 8:51, 8:44, 9:34, 10:08, 9:48.
