Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

Ran from house to the start with Geralyn. Ran a little harder than we should have but not too bad. Had some water and a gel just prior to the start.
  • 47m 8s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 35s  min/mile

Run went well. I ran the first 3 miles with Geralyn and then accelerated to the finish. First 3 miles were averaging 8 mpm or so last 3 averaged 7 mpm or so. Nice to negative split.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. The race went well and combined with the 3 mile warm-up made for a nice psuedo long run.
Post race
Warm down:

Milled around and got some water then went out to breakfast with some friends. Nice way to spend a Sunday morning.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Usual stuff. Running volume and intensity.

Performance: Good
Not all the miles were marked so I no mile splits.
Course: From the website: "The start is at the beach in Ocean Park. Runners head south on Barnard Way and curve onto Main Street and head north to Colorado Ave. Runners then head west to Ocean Ave. At this point the runners turn north for some of most scenic views of Santa Monica and the beaches. The 5k turns around at Washington Ave. (just north of Wilshire) for a gradual descent to the finish which is just before the Santa Monica Pier (the site of the Post Event Expo and Party). The 10k goes up to San Vicente and turns around at 11th St."
