It was a good run. Though my splits continued to slow. Could have gone under 25 minutes but I was beat.
What would you do differently?:

Keep even pace.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around. Drank some water. Got in line to get the goodies!!!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

In honesty there was an older guy who kept on slapping his feet when they hit ground. It was driving me batty and i think that took my concentration away.

Event comments:

The race was nice for this time of the year. The end of the race goody give away could have been better. And the bag check was in a small space so the line was big.
