This was "preceived" as really, really tough. My first race after doing the Chicago Tri. Not sure what the reason was but it was almost impossible keeping my pace throughout the entire course. I felt a little sick to my stomach during the 1st mile. I dug deep to keep pace. Happy with the results but disappointed with my PRE on this one.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure. Possibly hydrate better before race possibly. Warm up sprints most likely would help.
Post race
Warm down:

2 Gatorades after finish line. Light stretch.

Event comments:

It was great to be out on the Runway. This was a once in a lifetime chance at Chicago's O'Hare Airport. The expanse of the airfield made me feel small and it was a little tougher, mentally to keep pace and race within myself. Thinking of doing the Dayton Air Force 1/2 Marathon next year.
