Total Time = 1h 08m 38s
Overall Rank = 266/7365
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 42/754
Pre-race routine:

I didn't eat anything again for race morning. Went potty, then packed up goodie bag and drove to Parking. Drank some water.

Went potty again at stadium.
Event warmup:

Stretch briefly.
  • 1h 08m 38s
  • 10 miles
  • 06m 52s  min/mile

The pace was comfortably fast, and I found a rabbit again to run with/behind for the entire race. She was only about 5'3" and was probably running in the F35-39 AG. She was running with so much confidence it was amazing. I hope I didn't annoy her by being at her heels the whole way. We passed thru the original Start Banner, and I had to let her go for the last 1/4 mile. She was running a different race and I knew I was heading for another PR. Thanks for letting me tail you the whole time!
What would you do differently?:

I really, really need to start incorporating Stretching into my training. I was hurt for the last month and running middle distance at a fast clip makes me pull muscles and end up running on bad wheels. Both my Achilles ended up very tight and I suffered b/c of it.
Post race
Warm down:

Little bit of jogging to the car and back to p-u my camera and goodie bag. I left the parking lot and jogged the last 1/4 mile of the race again to the finish so I could take photos. Also, stretched for 10 minutes after all the finish activities.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My right calf and Achilles were tight from weekend prior 1/2 marathon and the training run I did on Thursday. Other than that, I had a great run at a great pace.

Event comments:

Great event. You can't beat finishing inside Soldier Field where the hometown Chicago Bears play!
