Pre-race routine:

Woke up approximately 1 hr before race time. Ate some cereal and sipped on G2 from start until race time. Had my mp3 player running for most of the hour before the race.
Event warmup:

Light jog for 800m, little bit of stretching.
  • 22m 14s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 27s  min/km

I pushed a little harder in the beginning and am sure I lost a bit of pace on the 3rd and 4th uphills respectively. I still can't complain. This is my best 5K time I've run in awhile and I was 45 seconds better on this course than I was two years ago.
What would you do differently?:

More anaerobic training.
Post race
Warm down:

Water. Awful but free turkey sandwich.

Anaerobic endurance

Event comments:

This is an excellent race to bring your kids to as there was a ton of kids activities including a fun run after the 5K was over.
