I just got back from the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler. PERFECT weather, cherry blossoms were at their peak, women's WORLD RECORD was set there today (54-something?? I don't know by whom, I was, uh, well before the halfway point when she finished).
I finished in my 2nd or 3rd fastest time for ten miles, I think (1:56:51 by my watch), but I don't recommend trying to run a 10-miler after restricting calories for a week. Good thing it wasn't a big race for me, just a local fun one. The course was very crowded (10,000 runners) and I just tried to go with the flow and stay relaxed. I felt great until mile 6 or so and then had a major bonk. Then I just kept jogging along and thinking to myself, "See? I can keep jogging even if I bonk. Just slower. MUCH slower."
