Pre-race routine:

Had a bagel and PB before leaving the house and drank a liter of Gatorade during the hour before the race.
Event warmup:

Didn't really do one, although I should have. I didn't really get comfortable until 6-7 miles in.

  • 18.64 miles
  • 08m 21s  min/mile

Yikes. What a nightmare of a course. This thing started out hilly changed to rolling and then got really crazy. The last 4 miles were the toughest out there. Mile 17 was uphill for the whole mile. If I remember correctly, it climbed 300 feet over the mile, which is an average grade of almost 6%. That mile was 1:20 slower than any other mile of the race for me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Despite the hills, it was still a good performance. I ran right on the edge and felt pretty spent at the finish.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and stretched some to try and prevent stiffness.

Event comments:

Post race fare was pretty lacking. They had oranges, bananas, and Grandma's cookies. That was it. I stopped for chicken wings and a fried twinkie on the way home. Good football watching food.
