ran on the new quinnipiac trail route, which is a nice improvement - trail is a bit longer now, and trades a road section at the end for some runnable single/double track. conditions were fine given the time of year - mid 30s, a bit of a breeze, mixed sun and clouds with a couple flurries in the pm. trail was a bit muddy and wet in spots - didn't really slow me down except for the sleeping giant section - and if i'm being honest i was probably looking for an excuse to take it slower in that section anyway!
ran unsupported, starting with 1L of tailwind - plenty of spots to refill given the recent rains.
tried to keep the pace even, had to push a bit harder on the last 10 miles to make that happen
