Pre-race routine:

Just woke up and had a light breakfast and drove to the race.
Event warmup:

I walked to the start line I mean come on, your getting ready to run 62 miles I think you have a bit of time to warm up out on the course.
  • 17h 52m 3s
  • 62.14 miles
  • 17m 15s  min/mile

Ok, so I took it easy but I had a kick ass time and enjoyed the day. Best of all I had almost no blistering and had no injury or anything.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing at all.
Post race
Warm down:

I rode back to my mom's place with my wife driving then I ate and drank a little and went to bed.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing, I did just what I intended to do, have a good time and finish.

Event comments:

Bandera has a 25K, 50K and 100K all on the same day. They are great races in a nice location, well worth the trip.
