Event warmup:

I sat in my car and tried to stay warm.
  • 1h 12m 39s
  • 9.32 miles
  • 07m 48s  min/mile

I started out near the back again and then just worked my way up through the field. My Garmin had died so I ran by perceived effort, which probably let me run faster than I would have otherwise. I paced off another runner on the way out but she dusted me at the halfway point. Sorta lonely on the way back but I kept the pack behind me on my heels.
What would you do differently?:

Train more!

What limited your ability to perform faster:
