Hyannis, Massachusetts
United States
B.A. Event Promotions
Total Time = 1h 06m 2s
Overall Rank = 329/444
Age Group = F30-39
Age Group Rank = 49/83
Pre-race routine:

1/2 bagel with PB, 1/2 banana, coffee h20+FRS
Event warmup:

found BT-ers and got excited, and shared our room for storage
  • 1h 06m 2s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 10m 38s  min/mile

started out with the masses in the 10mm pack. hung with MAX for the first 2 miles - and watched Kathy, MAV and Friend-of-Harpoon pull further and further ahead, luckily i had running4beer pacing just a head of me the whole time. i stopped for a sip of water and 30 sec walk at mile 2 then hopped back into it and felt great until mile 4 where i took a 1 min walk break to wonder about the searing pain in my left knee. Got back on pace and focus on the music - and double checked with the course volunteers to make sure i wasn't following the 1/2 Mary crowd ;) then it was the final push to the end that i really wish i had worked harder. I'm excited to have kept my desired pace - the funny thing is i got close to the end before my 'power song' kicked in ... i'll have to move it up in the rotation for my next 10k!
What would you do differently?:

push harder at the end - not just the 50 yard sprint up the hill to cross the finish line
Post race
Warm down:

Coconut O water - my favorite!!
back to the room to freshen up and ICE BOTH KNEES

What limited your ability to perform faster:

my internal struggle - something inside my head believes that I'll die if i try to run faster in the last mile of a race - gotta work on NEGATIVE SPLITS

Event comments:

although i didn't need it - i expected more than 2 water stations... didn't limit my performance

BT Rocks - it was great to have a big group dinner before and huge lunch gathering after!

Nice going!  It was fun to run with you for the first 2 miles, you were exactly on my pace!  Next time put the Ipod on auto repeat, if you can stand to hear the same song about 20 times, over and over....LOL

Nice to see you over the weekend.  Nice job at the 10K.  I remember 2 years ago Max ran with me on a 15K road race.  He's always good company. 

Hope to see you again soon.
