Pre-race routine:

Ate a bowl of oatmeal and drank a cup of coffee. My friend Becky and her parents were there, so I chatted with them and another lady we know, Theresa, before the event.
Event warmup:

I stretched some and jogged a little.
  • 31m 32s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 10s  min/mile

I felt like I was going a little faster than usual, but my time does not reflect that. It's pretty much in line with my typical 5K time.
What would you do differently?:

I've just GOT to get faster.
