Pre-race routine:

Metallica the night before probably wasn't the best idea in the world! It was an evening race so I headed there right after work. I wasn't planning on running hard since I thought it was a trail run but when I got to the park and saw it was paved I said heck with it... time to PR!
Event warmup:

I jogged about a mile before the race started.
  • 20m 48s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 42s  min/mile

Well setting a PR is always good although I did have hopes of getting under 20 minutes. I'll get there eventually! 48 seconds away!

The first mile went pretty smooth and I was under 10 minutes at 1.55 miles. Somewhere around 2.25 I blew up and turned it down a notch. Ran the last .1 pretty hard to make sure I got in under 21:00.
What would you do differently?:

Get more sleep the night before and make sure to eat something between lunchtime (noon) and 6:30PM (the start of the race)
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and pounded cookies until they handed out the hardware (Yay for 5th place in age group trophies!)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training. I've done a lot less running training than last year. I still set a PR though so I guess it wasn't too bad :P

Event comments:

Another fun club race put on by the ORRRC.
