Pre-race routine:

Drove to Hamilton and searched for parking near the starting line. Then I sta in the car for 30 minutes trying to convince myself to run this race. It was cold and pouring rain outside. I was out of shape. This would be a crappy day.
Event warmup:

  • 3h 09m 59s
  • 30 kms
  • 06m 20s  min/km

The lens from my glasses fell out at kilometer 5 - this was an omen for the rest of the run.
By km 15 I was shivering and my legs were going. By km 20 I was alternating walk with run.
I finished 20 minutes slower than last year - but I finished.
What would you do differently?:

Stayed in bed... No, that's not true. I'm glad I tried it and fininshed
