Pre-race routine:

Talked to Dudley. Bowl of cereal for breakfast, drank a bottle of water about 45 minutes before race time. Introduced Steve to Dudley.
Event warmup:

Walked around a little bit, short jog and then move to the starting area.
  • 1h 05m 28s
  • 8 miles
  • 08m 11s  min/mile

My goal was to run about 8:30 per mile, I was able to surpass that. It was a great run.
What would you do differently?:

Figure out how to lose the 20 lbs I still carry around with me.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, stretched. Congratulated Dudley. Congratulated Steve on his great run, he averaged 9:01 per mile while his goal was 10:00. Drank some Gatoraide and ate a little bit of food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A little extra weight and it's early in my training season.

Event comments:

No water on the route. Didn't really need it myself. Lots of local police at the intersections and lots of volunteers at corners. Overall a very good race route.
