Pre-race routine:

Got up early and had coffee, water, and a bowl of oatmeal and a bunch of Immodium. Went to the bathroom about a zillion times.
Event warmup:

Stood in line at the porta-potty the jogged about a quarter mile to the start.
  • 34m 23s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 11m 04s  min/mile

Have been having bathroom "issues" for 4 days now with no signs of it letting up. Used the porta-potty immediately before the start, but right after the mile 2 marker, ran into a cornfield to take care of business so I wouldn't "mess" myself. Up till then I was having my best race EVER, but could not get back into my rhythm afterwards. Had to walk a few times.
What would you do differently?:

Get up earlier, take more Immodium.
Post race
Warm down:

To the porta-potty, got some water and a banana and waited for the awards.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Freakin' bathroom issues!!!!
