Event warmup:

I ran up a hill to the race registration and then back down. After shaking out for a few mintues, they started the race
  • 24m 44s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 59s  min/mile

This was a good run for the last two miles. I ran with megan the first mile, planning to run with her the whole time, but when the space opened up, she couldn't keep up. I felt bad at first, but her mom told me it was fine because I had to run my pace.
What would you do differently?:

Probably start closer to the start line. Try to keep up with Henry
Post race
Warm down:

I walked to the car and back. Maybe about ten mintues tops.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

All the people in the way.

Event comments:

One good thing though is that there were tons of people on the course cheering you on and playing Christmas music. it took my mind off my hurting.

Performance: Average
Course: The course was okay. We looped part of it twice. It was really pretty in the woods. The problem was that it was so narrow, that I couln't move at my own pace without bumping into anyone for the first mile. By the time I could run normally, the race was a third over.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
