Pre-race routine:

Omnomnom'd some bagels, coffee, gels, coffee, accelerade, coffee. Yum.
Event warmup:

Warmed up, was a little worried that my legs weren't responding much, so I relaxed and just kept my heartrate up as much as possible...which was damn near nothing.
  • 46m 38s
  • 6.22 miles
  • 07m 30s  min/mile

My mental toughness was good and I was happy that I kept going without letting that little voice in my head get to me.
What would you do differently?:

Not get the GD pig flu for 10 days and completely disrupt my training.

Performance: Good
Holey moley, my HR was through the roof, but I know y'all say race HR does that, so I'm ignoring it.
Course: Mostly downhill, a little rolling action and then a hill at the end that isn't much, but it made me consider calling a cab.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
