Pre-race routine:

Race was at 10:00 a.m., so really no special preparations.
Event warmup:

Jogged around the block with some of the faster ladies in the running club. Since they were warming up, I was able to keep up with them.
  • 33m
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 37s  min/mile

Being a slow runner, I don't usually care much for 5ks. They are a lot of work, although over quickly. But this was the inaugural year for the FatA$$ 5K and the Race Director is a really nice guy in our running club.

Don't remember exact time, my first lap around the block was 9-something. This is not a competitive race, there's actually a beer stop and an ice cream stop. It was the first running I've done since the marathon last weekend, and I've got a little lingering pain on the outside of my right foot. On the last lap, I hit both the beer and ice cream stop, then cruised on over to the water stop.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe hit the beer stop twice?
Post race
Warm down:

Street party afterwards with plenty of beer, pulled pork BBQ. The food line was slow moving but worth the wait.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably drinking beer and eating ice cream...

Event comments:

I think everyone should work the Fat A$$ 5K into their race schedule.
