Pre-race routine:

Stretches, water, and a banana with .75 mile warm up
Event warmup:

.75 mile at 10m/mile pace
  • 1h 49m 5s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 20s  min/mile

started off at a good pace, but ran the mile 4-9 too fast and paid for it at the end. Mile 11 through the finish were very tough to maintain my pace.
What would you do differently?:

Maintain my pace until later in the race
Post race
Warm down:

Water food and short run down the board walk

Event comments:

Overall the race is ok, but a little over rated seeing how there is almost no after party (only 1 beer and no food) you do get a free entry to a concert the night of the race, but I don't really like to wait around that long.
