Pre-race routine:

Well I stood around talked to friends. I tried to loosen up my feet because they were tired from yesterday's 20 miler. I was not sure if I would be able to run or if I would end up walking the course.
Event warmup:

  • 29m 59s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 38s  min/mile

Mile 1: 9:13
mile 2: 9:44
mile 3: 10:06
mile .1: :57

I started out strong. The last mile the heat was really getting to me. I felt like it was 95 degrees out. I passed up water at mile 2 and I thought about grabbing some just to cool off the body. I figured I did not want to slow down and considering I hit my goal by 1 second I might been the right call.

What would you do differently?:

well I ran 20 miles the day before and I would not run it. I would also wear a lighter shirt so it would breathe better
Post race
Warm down:

I walked alot

What limited your ability to perform faster:

20 mile run I did the day before and the fact my head hurt I think because I was dehrdated.

Event comments:

It was a good race. Very unique and in some ways its too bad it was a one time only shot.
