Pre-race routine:

Up at 4am to get all of my stuff together. Had a big coffee and an apple to eat on the way to the MARTA station. Train ride was quick and was at the event by 5:45. That normally makes me feel good to be early, but it was FREEZING! I had underdressed, and really just wanted the race to start. I was wearing shorts, underarmor base, short sleeved shirt, long sleeved shirt, and pullover. I decided to start the race with everything on. Dropped bag off and waited in that horrible herd of people until the start.
Event warmup:

Nothing...but I wish it had been a bon fire.
  • 2h 10m 13s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 56s  min/mile

For me this was a victory by keeping a steady pace the entire race. Blister on my left little toe at mile nine caused me to run funny which resulted in a sore left foot for a couple days.
What would you do differently?:

Bandage that little toe. It has done it to me on occasion in the past.
Post race
Warm down:

No way. I was looking to warm up. And didn't until I got back to my car. I can't believe I didn't get sick.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training time.

Event comments:

I liked it!

Performance: Average
Course: I loved the course. Many said it was tough, but for me to keep 10 min/miles, it couldn't have been too bad. I got to see many parts of the city I'd never seen. Loved the cheering and supportive spectators (my favorites being the main intersection in Virginia Highlands, and all of the 'beer people').
