Pre-race routine:

not much - hadnt run in a few weeks because of some achilles tendonitis
Event warmup:

aside from walking from the car to the start line and realizing it was too warm and doffing my hat and a few layers in a bush - none
  • 36m 27s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 17s  min/mile

all I can say is that swimming and aqua jogging and biking are poor subsitutes for running. My CV was a little weak, legs not as strong and my race execution was wicked bad
mile 1 6:05 (yeah that was a big problem there waaaay too fast)
mile 2 12:50 (starting to lose it)
mile 3 21:00 (this would have been about last years pace but instead of feeling great and gaining steam I was losing it)
mile 4 28:30 (heel feeling tight and I was out of breath)
mile 5 36:27 (just jogging it in getting passed left and right)
What would you do differently?:

not be injured prior to the race
I could run fast for a short period so that is nice to know. Time to take some more time off and rest up the legt for next year.

Post race
Warm down:

went to perkins and ate omelettes and pancakes until I felt like puking

Event comments:

Sold out with 8k people, my little hometown with a starting line 2.5 miles from my house on a thanksgiving day - I love this little tradition.
