Pre-race routine:

Had a mountain dew and a Marathon bar- drove to race with Janet, Amy and Jeff- we satyed like 5 minutes away- which was nice. Did a little stretching- hung out with my friends....tried to get up to the 3:30 pace group- but it was too crowded.. I was feeling a 1:45 today. I rwally was kind of just doing this as a training hard- wasnt going to push much and wasnt going to be dissapointed in my time- but I thought I might do OK.

Comments:

They had 8000+ runners this year- which is great for them- but kinda crowded at the start as the full, half and 5kers all went out together. I felt pretty good going in - that off day Saturday really freshened up my legs- wonder what more of a taper for a hm would do. Starting out I saw a girl who beat me 2 weeks ago in the Appleton duathlon and passed her after about a mile :), then I saw a chic decked out out in her IM finisher gear- though...hmmmm I should try to keep up with her- passed her :) Mile one was like 8:10- good for trying to get through the crowds. In the next mile I started running with this guy in an oarnge shirt, who I thought was running a nice pace- I looked at my garmin and saw I never actually got signal (duh) so all I had was HR and time- which was fine- every mile was marked so I knew how I was doing. I stayed with the oarnge shirt guy until mile 11- we were doing an AWESOME job at staying at 8 min miles- like almost right on an 8:00-8:03 pace every mile... I love being able to pace myself- I usually have a problem going out too hard. I felt so good- so comfortable- until about mile 11.5 (?) then we were running by the staduim and got into a strong headwind- I think my pace slowed down a bit here AND I lost my running bud- I think he couldnt keep up with supergirl ;). Then we hit the stadium and that was kind of a rush so I picked up the pace a bit again...wish I would have a little more- I could have gone sub 1:45. this is almost a 2 min pr for me:) I also felt a ton better then I have after my previous half marathons. Grabbed gatorade once, water twice, and one GU...think that was OK..maybe one more water towards the end would have helped- but I was sorta feeling a side ache and didnt want to deal with that.
oh knees, itband- everything felt good too- damn good day
Ave HR 174..kinda high- Z4- but didnt feel that high..maybe time for another LT test

What would you do differently?:

nothing- could have done better but overall very happy- and happier knowing I could have pushed harder. Next time sub 8s :)

Post race
Warm down:

walked aroun- waited for my friends who werent already done-

What limited your ability to perform faster:

...uh the month off of running I had cuz of my knee?? My lack of taper....

Event comments:

I like this race- decent goody bag- decent food- beer and brats :)
the shirt was kind of ummmm... unusual.
lots of volunteers- good stuff

A great run, no doubt!  Nice job, Donkette!

I hope you use the Garmin incident as a training tool to remember to double-check everything so you have one less worry on your upcoming races.

Great race and PR.  That is some very sweet pacing, too..especially considering the Garmin wasn't locked in.  And best of all, it sounds like the body held up, too.  Good stuff.

Keep up the good work!
