Post race
Warm down:

walking around to keep loose, drinking water, eating some food

What limited your ability to perform faster:

endurance. Need more 18+ mile runs to not run out of gas late in the race.
mental training. I think I could have run a bit faster the last 3-4 miles (since the last mile was one of the fastest miles in the whole race)

Event comments:

The post-race massage was probably the best one I have had after a race. They took their time and really worked on what was sore.
