Pre-race routine:

  • 10 miles
  • 09m 12s  min/mile

my knees and hips were already sore before running from working on our basement slab all week.. so, the run just made them VERY sore.
What would you do differently?:

cold & windy... so i wore a hoody sweatshirt, but had to come out of it starting up the hills into iroquouis park. had to undo the ipod strap, tore my race bib through the pins on my belt, etc, etc, so i wasted a minute or two getting squared away...
Post race
Warm down:

waited in the cold wind, wet clothes, for kristy to finish inside the stadium. pizza, panera bread & gatorade.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

hernia surgery 5 weeks ago and any lack of run training this year.
