Total Time = 1h 44m 41s
Overall Rank = 66/391
Age Group = 19-24
Age Group Rank = 10/24
Pre-race routine:

Shower to warm up my muscles. Ate an orange, CLIF Bar and drank a Gatorade AM.
Event warmup:

Walked .5 mile to the race site. Stretched.
  • 1h 43m 41s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

A really good run, I beat my goal. I warmed up the first 4 miles with a retired Air Force guy, keeping an 8.5 min/mile pace; but I dropped him and sped up to get a good time. My injury wasn't too bad.
What would you do differently?:

Not get injured a week beforehand.
Post race
Warm down:

10 minute cold bath, 30 minute hot shower, stretch. Gatorade, apple slices, orange slices, and half a Subway sandwich.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My injury and this being a training run. The wet course didn't help either, and the hills were rough.

Event comments:

It was a good run for me, but there wasn't anything to do afterwards. Jared from Subway was there, but it did not really look like him.
