Pre-race routine:

Downed a Rockstar energy drink and I was good to go!
Event warmup:

Ran around in the 'holding' area by the runway while we waited for all the busses to bring the rest of the runners. Two toilets about 3 football lenghts away from the start gave plenty of time to run.
  • 19m 50s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 23s  min/mile

Nice and flat!!! Started wheelchairs 3 min ahead of the other runners. Also asked for the faster runners to step to the front of the line (I liked that they did this).
What would you do differently?:

Event wasn't well organized. Check-in was from 7-8:30 and I showed up at 7:20 and they told me they were still setting up and acted like I was early and in their way... Also the bus couldn't get past the security to get onto the airport property for about 10 minutes because they didn't coordinate it very well.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed a bottle of water at the end and cooled down quickly because it was quite cold outside.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Would like to have a check station out at the runway for baggs. It was colder than we thought it was going to be with the wind by the runway.

Performance: Good
Only saw one mile marker on the course. I may have just missed the other two.
Course: Started at one end of runway 22L and ran down to the end where there was a JetBlue airplane parked. A quick u-turn and back to the end of the runway to the finish. Was neet to have airplanes flying overhead while they landed on runway 31R. 3 drink stations that I didn't use.
Keeping cool Good Drinking

How is this race even legal? I would have raced it, but it sounds hard to manage from a security standpoint.
