Pre-race routine:

Light run, stretch... We arrived about 5 min before the start, so there wasn't much time to warmup.
  • 46m 36s
  • 6.23 miles
  • 07m 29s  min/mile

I was deliberately holding back a bit to make sure I didn't overdo it. Afterall, I'm running a race in two days! I'm not sure I took it easy enough, but what's done is done. I don't feel too bad, so we'll see :)
What would you do differently?:

Remember to pick up my race packet! I had to run in someone else's name because I didn't get my packet (fortunately someone else in our group had picked up his packet and backed out at the last minute).
Post race
Warm down:

Stretch, stretch, stretch. Ate a bagel. Gotta make sure I stretch so I'm not locked up in two days.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I'm just not that fast! Plus, I didn't want to push it.

Event comments:

This is a great course and a fun run. It certainly helps build your confidence about 10Ks... it makes them seem easy :)

Performance: Good
Course: As always, very forgiving. The first part of the run is downhill, and then it's mixed flats and downhill. The only noticeable uphill part is at the end toward the finish line (about .5 mi). It's easy!
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
