Boston, Massachusetts
United States
Boston Runner
30F / -1C
Total Time = 1h 07m 2s
Overall Rank = 619/648
Age Group = 30-39
Age Group Rank = 138/154
Pre-race routine:

Oatmeal, little coffee, little water
Event warmup:

hopped around...
  • 1h 07m 2s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 10m 49s  min/mile

I was very excited for this race; i've been training regularly and felt good. That good feeling evaporated as mile 3 started and i realized that i hadn't eased off the training and my legs felt like they were 100lbs each! I started out pretty fast (not as fast at Tufts) but i thought i could maintain for a lot longer than i did. i walked for 30-60 sec at each water stop (which there were 2 and irregularly spaced) and again this didn't give me the usual refreshment.
What would you do differently?:

this was a good pre-Hyannis 10K experience - i'll definitely taper for hyannis.

Post race
Warm down:

little vitamin water and a little stretch... then many bloody mary's, chili and nachos with Boston Beginner and Running4Beer

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I was over-dressed. it was hard to gauge what the wind was going to do so i went with my running jacket - i was overheated by mile 3 and grumpy and uncomfortable.

Event comments:

the start was NOT organized; the start/finish line was pushed back a the end of an industrial park and there were lots of snow and ice piles. NO seeding which i overheard frustrated a lot of 'faster runner' - the head count went from 300 to 1500 from last year so i guess that's just growing pains.

Great job Lisa.  It was great to finally meet you and John yesterday.  I agree, a bit unorganized.  See you guys in Hyannis.
