Event warmup:

I didn't do much of a warm up. I think this worked for me, given that by mile 13 I was totally spent. If I'd added on a mile beforehand my leg muscles would have been hurt even more.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I think I did as well as I could have at my particular fitness level. I think developing more back and core strength would help me, as I noticed a significant difference between my pace when in proper running form and when I would slouch from lack of energy.

Event comments:

I'm hooked. I can't remember a feeling quite like finishing this race.
