Pre-race routine:

had the usual breakfast and drove over.
Event warmup:

I jogged a little and stretched.
  • 18m 2s
  • 5 kms
  • 03m 37s  min/km

This race started out slower than any 5k I have ever been in so I stayed with the leaders for about a half a mile and then decided that that isn't how you run a 5k. I didn't want to be close to them if they had a better kick at the end than me. So I picked up the pace and put some distance between us and then I settled in and just ran hard but comfortable for the rest of the race..
What would you do differently?:

This was an excellent race for me and my first win! I would sprint out instead of staying with the pack early.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched a little and just hung around waiting for the award ceremony. Finished 30 seconds ahead of second place.

Event comments:

This is a good small town race.
