4th Dimension Racing
= 1h 23m
Age Group Rank
Banana, carbo pro and nuun, and half of a Mountain Dew left out overnight to get flat
A light jog for a few minutes with a couple of 15 second pickups
06m 20s min/mile
Good weather for a race: a little overcast to begin with and a bit chilly, but it warmed up quickly once we were underway. Clothing = shirt, armwarmers, gloves
(taken off halfway through
), shorts, compression socks. Shoes = NB 1400.
Found some good heels about a third of the way through. Turned it up a notch on the final turn toward the park.
The out-and-back section was mentally very tough; it seemed to go on for a super long time.
Pacing was consistent. I had a bit left in the tank at the end, so I could've probably gone a little harder in the final 5k.
What would you do differently?:
The start was a little congested, so I could've probably shaved a few more seconds off the early mile or two.
Great race and the organization was excellent. Aid stations may have been a little sparse
(I didn't use them, but I suppose some could've used another one appropriately spaced
). As mentioned before, the out-and-back section was a killer, but I don't see an easy way around that since there aren't that many opportunities to add distance.

Mixed: primarily gravel trail, but start and finish were on pavement. Running north to south meant finishing with a series of out-and-backs in a parking lot.
