Pre-race routine:

Ate some oatmeal with blueberries and dragged the wife out to the event.
Event warmup:

Some walking around and light stretching.
  • 38m 36s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 12m 27s  min/mile

This was basically just another training day for me but alot more fun than running around the park. Followed a 4 minute walk/2 minute run pattern and ran after mile 3 to the finish line. I felt great through the whole run.
What would you do differently?:

More warmup next time. It's a lot cooler here than in Corona and my muscles were tight for the first mile.
Post race
Warm down:

Short walk.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I just need to keep following the training and gain more distance and speed.

Event comments:

My first 5K race and it was a blast. It's great to get out and do this with your friends and family. We even ran into some folks from work.
