Very good run considering my total lack of training. I expected a much slower time. As much as I dislike running in the cold, the lack of wind made it quite pleasant.
What would you do differently?:

uh, train...

Warm down:

walked to 24th St bathroom and changed into dry clothes.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

uh, not training.

Event comments:

One water station was out of commission because the fire hydrant wasnt working, but it was so cold today that I didn't need it.

Post race party was great- Huge tent, bands, they give you 4 beer tickets and I am proud to announce I drank all 4:)
