Pre-race routine:

Did some light running from the car to race site to warm up my body temp. Ate my oatmeal and sipped on G2.
Event warmup:

Just the 1/2 mile jog from car to race start.
  • 1h 41m 45s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 46s  min/mile

Kept a great pace after using mile one to warm up my muscles. Ran with my 20 ounce bottle full of G2. Wanted to hit under 8 minutes each mile and had no trouble doing so. Was happy :-)
What would you do differently?:

Maybe tried to finish all 20 ounces in my run bottle and get a refill.

Warm down:

Got a free massage while waiting for my friend to finish. Stretched and ate my bagel.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing today, all was good! Hit my goal with no issues or complaints :-)

Event comments:

Am so happy to have placed 36 out of 949 females :-) Makes me feel like an actual "runner".

Great race, lots of fun, all diffrent levels of athletes. Will do it again next year for sure!
