Pre-race routine:

Arrive way early and repair a mystery flat on my rear wheel (no evidence of any problem on the tube, but completely flat this morning). Changed clothes, fixed the wheel and rode a bit
Event warmup:

6 or so laps around the crit course of varying intensity. Ride out to the start line, take my spot, heva a gel and we're off!

I really felt good tonight. I started hot and kept the juice flowing. I knocked 40seconds off my time from May on the same course. I kept my head down and focused on the 10 yeards of pavement in front of me instead of dwelling on the larger picture. When I hit the turn-around, I could hardly believe I was at the far point of the race. I did my best to leave it all on the road tonight and guess I had; just missed my PR by 18 seconds.
What would you do differently?:

Not much; I think I nailed it as best I could tonight!
Post race
Warm down:

Ride back to the pareking lot and wait for times.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

An aero helmet might be in my near future....
