Pre-race routine:

I picked up Dudley then Mike and headed to the race. Registered for the entire 6 race series.
Event warmup:

It was 16 degrees! I sat in the car to warm up!
  • 40m 12s
  • 5 miles
  • 08m 02s  min/mile

Took off easy, the roads started out snow covered for the first mile or so. Once on main roads I just focused on holding a steady pace. There were a few hills, but nothing terribly challenging. The race ended back into the same park we started in so really couldn't sprint the finish on the snow. I was aiming for 40 minutes, so I was fairly close.

What would you do differently?:

Keep working on improving the speed over the winter. Other wise I ran close to what I had hoped to.
Post race
Warm down:

Found Dudley and Mike and then the lodge to get something to eat.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I'm pleased with my progress this fall.

Event comments:

This race is part of a series put on over the winter by the local running club. Not a lot of frills, but very nicely done. I know enough after last year to bring a small bottle of something to drink on the course as there is rarely if ever a water stop. Heck, all you would get is ice cubes if they had em!
