Hamilton, Ontario
Around the Bay Road Race
4C / 39F
Total Time = 3h 22m 17s
Overall Rank = 3715/4488
Age Group = 50 - 54 Men
Age Group Rank = 331/373
Pre-race routine:

Drove down with a couple of buddies. Hung around inside Copps until 5 after 9 and then headed to the start line.
Event warmup:

Walked to the start line.
  • 3h 22m 17s
  • 30 kms
  • 06m 44s  min/km

Started off fealing really sluggish. Then once loosened up, felt good. Took first walk break at about 12k and then just walked the aide stations. Walked the big "hill" at the 26k mark although ran all the other "rollers". Ran the last 3k, in better than 6m/k. Was afraid that IT band would claim another race, but it didn't and I felt great by the end.
What would you do differently?:

Could have pushed a little more as the IT Band was good.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked to the food and then met up buddies inside Copps. Did some stretching and then walked to Tim's for coffee and then the long drive home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Afraid of IT Band kicking in and limited long distance training. Most I had done since November was the Chilly Half and a Good Friday 10 miler.

Event comments:

Will definitely do it again and train more for it.
