Nashville, Tennessee
United States
Nashville Predators / Nashville Striders
53F / 12C
Total Time = 23m 31s
Overall Rank = 152/1503
Age Group = 45 - 49 male
Age Group Rank = 7/48
Pre-race routine:

Hammer Sustained Energy 3 hours before race time. One GU w/caffiene 10 minutes before race start.
Event warmup:

Jogged 1/2 to 3/4 mile. Light stretching.
  • 23m 31s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 34s  min/mile

May have started the 1st mile too fast. Was in the middle of the crowd and was trying to find some clear running space. Tried to throttle back on the 2nd mile to save a kick for the end.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe focus a bit more on the 2nd mile - focus on maintaining pace - I may have backed off a bit too much on the 2nd mile.
Post race
Warm down:

Jogged about 3/4 of a mile after inhaling a bagel, a banana, bottled water and a Cliff bar.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The crowded course.

Event comments:

THis is my 3rd consecutive year running this race. It is a lot of fun.
