Pre-race routine:

Registered. Decided it was too cold for what I was wearing and went home for hat and gloves. (It's nice to be 3 minutes from home.)
Event warmup:

Easy jog to warm up and get used to the wind.
  • 26m 44s
  • 2.5 miles
  • 10m 41s  min/mile

This is the first time I have run on grass, so it felt different. The wind was wicked, and when we headed into the wind it felt like I stopped moving forward. The other participants were mostly Princeton University students, so much younger than me. I was just running for fun, so it ended up being a good training run. I was disappointed that "5K" was only 2.5 miles, but I thought my time was decent considering the wind.

Warm down:

Drank some water, went home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Wind, plus I really was just there for the fun of it and didn't really race.

Why upset?  You finished earlier than expected, right?
