Pre-race routine:

Got up and checked the temp, it was cold and rainy, but temp was on the border for tights so I elected to go without and just kept my warm-ups over my shorts before the race. Left early with my daughter (also raced) and parents who were visiting. Found a good parking spot and relaxed for a bit before venturing to the start line.
Event warmup:

Stretched a bit and walked the front of the corrals but as the crowds gathered, we were limited to moving in place.
  • 37m 55s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 35s  min/mile

One of my best short distance races so far (ran a 5k PR pace, and continued it on until 5 miles).
What would you do differently?:

Probably could have pushed just a bit harder in mile 3-4.
Post race
Warm down:

Clipped my chip and jogged back along to find my daughter and joined her on her PR finish.

Event comments:

Great job!
