Pre-race routine:

The 5K wasn't until 10am, but I was at the race by 6:15 to work the race number pick up table. The Half Mary was at 8am, 10K at 8:15, Fun Run at 9:30, and then finally the 5K at 10.
Event warmup:

Some walking and stretching. Had to find Rolando (my run partner).
  • 34m 33s
  • 3.2 miles
  • 10m 48s  min/mile

The run out went faster than I expected. Walked up the last big hill, then ran down to the turnaround. Walk up the big hill again, and then paced myself alternating run/walk on a 3/1 ratio. Then finished the last 5 minutes with all running.

At about the 1 mile marker I told Rolando to go ahead and not let me hold him back. He did the race in about 29 minutes.

Overall, I'm really happy about my race. I wanted to beat 38 minutes which was my fastest 5K to date and I did that.
What would you do differently?:

All my training has been inside on a treadmill. I need to get outside and run some cause it is so different. Need to find a group to run with that will keep me running and not let me stop just cause I want to. :)

Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, banana at the food tent, found Frank and Rolando and visited some. Then home to the shower. Yeah.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My right foot flared up with PF. I'm thinking I may need to go do a run clinic and have my strike and gait analyzed to see how we can avoid the PF flaring.

Event comments:

Fun race. Just wish the 5K could start a little earlier than 10am, but being in Feb it did mean that our day was a little warmer than for the half and 10K runners. With the races spaced out as they were, the finish line was not that crowded. Busy yes, crowded no.

Why mentioning the starting time of the other races?  Now I'm on edge not knowing.

Hmmmm, get that PF evaluated sooner than later, 'K?
