Event warmup:

Sit in car to keep warm and jog slowly to start gate. (I.e. not much of a warm up!)
  • 1h 06m 26s
  • 7 miles
  • 09m 29s  min/mile

I really liked this course--it was tough but well laid out and well supported. The first few miles were a bit crowded which held your pace back quite a bit, but once things thinned out it was fine. It was very hilly, but it was perfect because just when I got to the point where I thought I couldn't run up anymore, there was a downhill or short flat that lasted JUST long enough for me to steady my HR and catch my breath before starting up another monster.
What would you do differently?:

Train. Also, I was in the middle of my 1st trimester, so that I'm sure affected both the running I was doing to "train" as well as zap some energy when actually racing. But overall, I was honestly very pleased with the pace I held considering how hilly the course was.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around the finish a bit and eat food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training and being pregnant.

Event comments:

This is a really great local trail race. I definitely want to do this race again next year!
