Pre-race routine:

Burning calories in anxiety over driving to Baltimore and parking after receiving a ton of emails from race organizers over where to park and where to not even THINK about parking. And I hate to drive.

Oh, and we were out of bagels, so it was coffee and toast with cheese for b'fast. And a PowerGel 1/2 hour before the gun. G4 in my handheld flask.
Event warmup:

Walking the 50 miles or so from where I did park my car - having arrived at the park at oh-dark-thirty - to the race start.

Event comments:

Grazed far too much on those fab cookies. I really have to run faster to justify them! Ha!
