Stoked for you that is a HUGE PR - enjoy the rest!
For me 15 with a pretty good 9 mile progression/tempo.
The 8 faster miles felt pretty good, hard at the end.
I ran to my sisters house for dinner, about 15 miles away, and stopped at a VONS at mile 14. I was totally disoriented, and had a terrible time with the automatic checkout machine. I hate those things.
