started out at my comfy 11 min mile pace with the strategy to stop at every other rest stop for gatorade only. first 2 miles were very cold, but warmed up quickly, glad i decided on shorts and tee shirt. miles 7-8-9 flew by - all below 11 - so i just started to push harder. slowest mile was 11:09 - fastest was 10:34!!! i've never felt SO GOOD on a run. 15min 10sec better than rock and roll.
What would you do differently?:
NOTHING! even with my half-ass training, i had a freaking great race.
collect goodies in the finishers chute, find jenn and neil, head to the beer tent and dance to the cover band for about an hour. a blast. special thanks to the volunteer that ignored the 4-beer limit for runners, shared some of those freebies with neil.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
my training :(
j&a runs a great race. i would REALLY recommend this to anyone looking for a big race experience. less stress and more fun than rock n roll, and the post race was WONDERFUL. i'll probably do this again at some point. screw the rnr!
