View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Tempe, Arizona
United States
Pat Tillman Foundation
80F / 27C
Total Time = 43m 50s
Overall Rank = 6872/13403
Age Group = 30 - 35
Age Group Rank = 1883/2795
Pre-race routine:

Half-bagel with honey peanut-butter. Drank some water too.
Event warmup:

Didn't have time for a warmup, we got there late, I was actually one of the last people across the starting line.
  • 43m 50s
  • 4.2 miles
  • 10m 26s  min/mile

Went strong for the first 10 minutes or so, then slowed to a more reasonable pace as going strong was keeping me in the high 170s as far as heart rate.
What would you do differently?:

Walked less, I stopped a few times to get my heart rate down, had I managed my pace a bit better in the beginning I would have completed the run without having to stop.
Post race
Warm down:

I backtracked about a mile to meet my mother who was walking it with my kids in a stroller, and walked through the finish with her again. So my total distance should have been something like 6.2 miles. But whatever.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Conditioning. Running more will solve this easily.

Event comments:

This is an awesome event, so many people, so much to do after you finish. If any of you reading this haven't done it before, do it! So much fun!
