Pre-race routine:

Stretching while waiting in the corral.
  • 00m
  • 0 miles
  •  min/mile

Good run for me, I could have probably pushed a little harder but I wasn't in training for this so I didn't know what pace was reasonable.
What would you do differently?:

Run a few 5 mile runs to get a better sense of pacing prior to the race.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched and walked to the post-race activities...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not doing any training specifically for this race...I was in off-season base and endurance building mode so short/fast runs weren't a part of the diet.

Event comments:

The start was a bit disorganized and the kids fun run was chaos. Overall a good race once it got started and there was some good crowd support near the start...once you got away from that area it was sparse or non-existent. Still a good race though and I'd do it again.
