Pre-race routine:

Woke 2:45. Had coffee, banana, aquaphor'd all of feet, lats where triceps rub, and between the legs. Left Bonnet Creek at 3:30. No traffic on way to EPCOT. Sticked legs when got out of car. Wore trashbag on way to corale. Took second dump in portopots behind bag check.
Event warmup:

Walked to corral, stretched, walked to woods to pee, stretched a litle more. Took a powerbar gel with caffeine 5 min before start. Took 1 tylenol before start.
  • 3h 51m 3s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 08m 49s  min/mile

Due to lack of training from ITBS and only starting to recover in the last 2 weeks, I planned on a lot of walk breaks. My goal was just to survive. Legs a little sore from the 2:23 half the day before, but not too bad. I bought 100% knee sleeve from the expo and wore it both days, and I think it really helped with the ITBS. I wanted to walk all waterstops, bought first one wasn't until into mile #2 so I didn't walk until then. I walked here and there besides the waterstops, but never more than .10 mile each mile. Mile 5, 10, 15, 20 I took a Cliff Shot Roc (2g protein). At Miles 10, 20, and finish I took Tylenol. After Mile 10, I biofreezed legs around every other medical tent. I took powerade every water stop. I took another gel or 2 they handed out, I forget when, but drank water following.
