Felt ok to start, a little harded on the knees and feet around the light house, but overall I'm happy with the race. Very dark on the second half. Had GI issues going into the second hald, so had to take a 5 mintues bathroom break, which didn't help with the time.
What would you do differently?:

First late evening race, so would probably eat differently before the race. Don't have vegetarian spaghetti for lunch the day of a race, expecially when not used to it.

Warm down:

A little light stretching, eate a Banana and had some water to drink.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

GI issues and some knee discomfort from the uneven ground by the light house.

Event comments:

Great race, nice venue, well manned.
