Pre-race routine:

We had to go a bit early as my Mom had to have her timing chip checked at the Hyatt before 8:30. She ended up needing a new chip and we were all set.
Event warmup:

Dancing along with 55,000 of our closest friends way back in the purple section TILL 10:00. Wow, was I tired of standing around.
  • 1h 37m 25s
  • 10 kms
  • 09m 44s  min/km

We made great time for the first few Km. I think Mom was pretty much making 10 min running with a min. break in between till 4 km when her knee began to hurt. I think she could have made it in 1:10 if she'd not needed to stop running. After that we just joined the thousands of others walking the event and enjoyed the bands and scenery.
What would you do differently?:

Hang out longer in the Hyatt where it was nice n' warm.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbing snacks in the stadium.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Fast wasn't really the goal here, accompanying my Mom on her very first event was, so we were just there to have fun and enjoy ourselves.

Event comments:

Amazing organization at this event to control that many people. Props to the volunteers.
