Pre-race routine:

Rough one. Had a party last night and ended up getting home at 1AM. By the time I packed it was 1:30 and couldn't fall a sleep til 2AM. Ate a PB&J @ 1:30 AM as the Last Supper.
Event warmup:

FC and I walked from the car to the starting line which was approx 1/4 mile.
  • 2h 32m 36s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 39s  min/mile

Because of my throat infection and cold, I was happy with my results. If I said any different I'd be bull$hitting. I ran MY OWN RACE and beat my mind as it was pushing to go faster.

Form was good and so were my Brooks Adrenaline G6. WHAT A SHOE. Sensei was right again!
What would you do differently?:

Sleep in a Hyperbaric Chamber for 2 weeks before the race to avoid catching my kids cold and throat infection. Wear nipple protectors- man they are sore!
Post race
Warm down:

Walk Walk Walk. Stretch and eat a few things. Endurox R4 is always a winner.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Being sick and racing on 2 hours sleep.

Event comments:

PR put up a great race that is sure to grow. Next year I'll shoot for 26.2.

Everything was GREAT. From event planning to weather. FC- thanks again for your direction and camaraderie and for introducing this into my lifestyle. Also thanks for introducing me to Peet's eventhough I can't drink coffee anymore anywhere else.

Oh yeah, "Other Dude" took his talking pills today as he was goin nuts.
