Pre-race routine:

Drank coffee for breakfast to cheer me up since I was the only one that didn't wimp out. Coffee... big mistake.
Event warmup:

Walked around Troy with Kevin looking for a bathroom. And then another one... and then another one... Stretched. Tried to think warm thoughts.

What would you do differently?:

Do NOT drink coffee in the morning unless I want to pee constantly! I got a crappy start in the back since I HAD to pee 4 minutes before the start - Again.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around looking for Kevin and then went to the bar to watch the 10K runners.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just people in the way. It was a learning experience for me, never having raced with this many people before. I could have gone SO much faster without the traffic! And I didn't even pass the start line until more than a minute after the start.

Event comments:

It's just a fun race...
