Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
United States
55C / 131F
Total Time = 42m 44s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = M35-39
Age Group Rank = 1/
Pre-race routine:

Had some coffee and a Clif Bar before driving out to th race.
Event warmup:

Ran easy for a couple miles and then did 4 strides with walking recoveries before heading over to line-up.
  • 42m 44s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 53s  min/mile

Felt good at the start (what's new?), but my pace was too fast. There were some decent hills (mostly in the middle of the course, but also towards the end) and the early pace simply left me with not enough 'legs' to get up these comfortably.

Time is off my Garmin (might have a few 'extra' seconds on it as a result) as I never saw any posted results. Know I won my AG and pretty sure I was somewhwere in the top-10 overall, but it wasn't a terribly deep field.
What would you do differently?:

Go out slower (but I say this all too often in these shorter runs).
Post race
Warm down:

Jogged for 10-15 min.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Light on water and food at the finish despite not an overwhelming turnout for the run. Nice schwag though--long sleeve t-shirt plus a hat & gloves.

Nice job. An age group win and a top 10 O/A on a day you didn't feel like you had a good race. Sounds like you lucked out in terms of the weather, it was pouring where I was about an hour later.
I'm kicking myself for not doing the race but the kids had karate that morning and Tammy had a class.
