Pre-race routine:

Friends Picked us up and drive the 2 miles to the race ( I wanted to ride my bike like I did last year but was over ruled. At least we carpooled). Bowl of cereal and some water
Event warmup:

Not much did some stretching. I was kinda cold. I was wearing shorts in the 23 degree weather. I felt fine after a mile or two but it was kinda cool.

  • 5 miles
  • 07m 02s  min/mile

Crowded the first 1.5-2 miles (thats what you get with 6K people) but was able to run comfortably the last 2 miles.
What would you do differently?:

I did a 2 hour cycling class the day before than ran afterwards. Did not have the freshest legs.
Post race
Warm down:

bounced in place waiting for the wife and friends to finish the a giant stack of pancakes, an omelette and hash browns and hot chocolate. I felt like puking. It was glorious and a good start to thanksgiving.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

no rest day and dumb training the day before. not really worried about it though. it was fun and I beat my PR from last year by three minutes.

Event comments:

close convenient and lotsa of participants. great way to start thanksgiving
