Pre-race routine:

slight jog and stretching
  • 1h 31m 12s
  • 9.3 miles
  • 09m 49s  min/mile

Really enjoyed the run, was nervous about a two hour time limit. The sweeper bus would pick up runners who were lagging behind. I have not run that distance in over 7 years, not even in a training run. Was thinking I would try to do it in 1:45:00, but did even better at 1:31:12. I cried tears of joy when I finished.
What would you do differently?:

Not stress too much about the time limit.

Not training

Event comments:

Got to see some friends that I have met through other races. Lots of funl. Would do it again, but stay longer for more fun.

Nicely done, I was supposed to get out there for that, but I let the "haven't run that distance in a long time" excuse get beat me down.
