Post race
Warm down:

did some stretching and drank water
ate some pizza to put food in my stomach

What limited your ability to perform faster:

weather was too cold for me. trained under the heat. was using up energy to keep me warm rather than being able to use that energy for the activity

Event comments:

ill do it again.
