That's a fast overall pace for that hilly route!
(Anecdote: Legend Henry Rono was sitting at a bar, shitfaced, and the runner/bartender asked him for the secret of getting fast.
He answered, "HEEEEEEELLLLLSSS!"
"Hills?"
"Yes!! HEEEEELS!"

Thanks. It sure didn't feel fast. Having good heels would help too.
