Age Group = 24-29
Age Group Rank = 8/
Pre-race routine:

Got up and ate 2 banana's and drank some Gatorade. Drove to the race.
Event warmup:

Ran for about 5 minutes and stretched out my legs.
  • 32m 37s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 29s  min/mile

This was my first 5k ever so I was a little nervous and not really sure what to expect. My goal was to finish without walking. I didn't walk...YEAH!!!!
What would you do differently?:

I would start further up in the pack on the start. I felt like I spent the first several minutes going around people and barely running. After the first 1/4 mile it spread out a lot but I felt like I lost at least a minute in the beginning because I couldn't really run due to the amount of people.
Post race
Warm down:

I walked around a little bit after the race, got a bottle of water and peanut butter sandwich.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Since I just started running recently I would say lack of practice limited my ability to go faster. Since I am running more I think I will do better my next race.

Event comments:

I thought the race was a lot of fun and plan on doing more!
