Chico, California

Under the Sun Events
40F / 4C
Total Time = 54m 5s
Overall Rank = 29/74
Age Group = 40-49
Age Group Rank = 9/12
Pre-race routine:

Bagel with peanut butter, bananna and a little bit of gatorade.
Event warmup:

Jogged around a bit, stretched.
  • 54m 5s
  • 6.5 miles
  • 08m 19s  min/mile

Overall, run felt pretty good - but I was about 2' 30" slower than last year. Last year I was building for a marathon in March, this year I am coming off of running one in December. I have felt the last few weeks that I did not have the quickness back that I used to have, and I guess this race confirms that.
I'm also really pushing the bike, and did a good ride yesterday... Knowing it would not help my running time, but thinking that I need to learn to run on "tired legs" for my 1/2 Iron later this year.
What would you do differently?:

Overall ran a pretty good race - would not change anything other than be faster!!!!
Post race
Warm down:

Ran another couple of miles to cool down, and get in the distance I needed.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Tired legs, coming off a marathon a month ago.

Event comments:

Julie and Nikki do a great job... Also a little chaos in the beginning, but somehow they pull it off.

Hey nice job on the race, esp on tired legs and coming off a marathon. That first mile was fast!

Hey Carol,

Thanks, I knew that I had to start fast, to get a good spot for the single track portion - otherwise I would have really fallen flat on my time.  Thanks for checking in,
