Pre-race routine:

Nothing really, no breakfast or anything. Just went to the race, parked and got ready to run.
Event warmup:

Just a few stretches, knee lifts and heel kicks to get the blood flowing
  • 41m 53s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 44s  min/mile

Not a bad run but I paced it all wrong. Went out way too fast (6:28) so as to not get bottled up, then just tried to hang on to the end. Lost the race mentally in my head around mile 3-4. There was no one around me and I didn't push myself as much as I could have.
What would you do differently?:

Pace better and work towards a negative split; be tougher mentally!
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, got some water, bagel w/ honey and banana. Waited for wifey to come in and just relaxed.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

It was a bit warm (80) and humid, but I don't think that really hindered me. Just wasn't tough mentally today.

Event comments:

Not a bad local 5/10k. Had fun! worth the $25.
