Colorado Colfax Marathon

Total Time = 2h 45m 12s

Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

I did not sleep to well and I was up at 4:00 am
Event warmup:

Walked down to the start line
  • 2h 45m
  • 13.1 miles
  • 12m 36s  min/mile

I learned a lot on this 13 miles run. First I did not have to eat as much as I did yesteray, I had 2 stop 2 times to use the porta potties so that did not help. BUT this was my first half marathon run and I did pretty dam good. There was not as many people along the route cheering as I was expecting and not much music at all. The first 7 miles was up colfax and it was sort a lonely, at times. At mile 7 it was the turn around to come back 17th that was a really pretty street to run down, lots of nice flowers and trees.
What would you do differently?:

do not eat as much they day before and get a better nights sleep. BUT heck hard to not think about running 13 miles and how it will go
Post race
Warm down:

Got across the finish line and got my medal, then walked around to stretch out legs. Right calf is tight

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I had to stop twice since I feel I most likely ate to much food yesterday. I had plenty of energy to complete the run.

Event comments:

I will still keep running. I want to do another half not sure if I want to do a full marathon plenty of time to think about that

Congrats Beka!!!  Hope your legs are recovering quickly from the race!

I was told that it's better to do the pasta dinner thing 2 nights before the race, and eat lightly the night before the race.   Sounds like you would agree
