Run was not good. Calves were "crampy" for 1st mile or so, then, started to loosen up. Time was very slow but noone to really pace this last portion of the race...I was kind of in no man's land.
Finished with a good sprint
What would you do differently?:

Try to keep the pace up especially once no threat of legs cramping.
Definitely need to hydrate better
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed some Gatorade and a banana.
Drank the rest of what I brought.
Had another water.
Should have stretched

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I'm thinking hydration since calf cramping became an issue for the last run.
Other than that, mental, and the fact that I've only been training for the runs for 8 weeks.

Event comments:

Has to be the best! It's the only one I've done so far!
