Fairfax, Virginia
United States
ARC of Nova
55F / 13C
Total Time = 34m 57s
Overall Rank = 41/207
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 14/56
Event warmup:

Group stretching, didn't really follow the guy but did some stretching on my own. The rain started to pick up about 10 minutes before the gun, so I was just trying to stay dry as long as possible.
  • 34m 57s
  • 4.97 miles
  • 07m 02s  min/mile

Started out feeling comfortable, picked off a few people up the hills at the beginning and was picking off a few here and there the rest of the race. The 2nd loop 3/4ths of a mile hill was tough, breathing heavy with rain in my face.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, felt solid and was on the verge of puking going into the final .25mi.
Post race
Warm down:

Some stretching and some coffee.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The rain made me a little slower, but still PR'd by 3 minutes.

Event comments:

This race was great because it was raised money for a really great cause, the Arc of Virginia who helps people with development disabilities lead normal lives. Many families came out and supported the event, and Congressman Gerry Connolly was there handing out the awards post race.

BAH won the corporate challenge, so we got our picture taken with the trophy which was cool.
