Pre-race routine:

Woke up and jumped on the trainer for a quick 25min warm up. Strecthed, had an orange and banana and we were on our way.
Event warmup:

Parked a little bit away from the check in. So ran to the check in from the car... 5 min lite jog.
  • 34m 29s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 07s  min/mile

Pushed a little to hard early on but ran for 6 min then walked a minute to get the heart rate down. 1st mile was slow around 12 min. Picked it up for the 2nd mile and finished that around 11 maybe a little more. Shortly after the mile 2 marker and there was a good downhill. Well I used my momentum genrating body to hurl myself down the hil. Good, big, long strides and was feeling good coming into the final .5 mile. hit the mile 3 marker and took off for the finish line. Didn't have as much in the tank as in my 1st 5k, and was happy that I used a lot of my energy on the course.

BEST OF ALL I DIDN'T FINISH LAST IN MY AG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What would you do differently?:

Continue training. I really could tell the difference when I was running in a fluid form and was not concentrating on form and just pounding the pavement.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around grabbed a water, juice, and sandwich. Little stretch (foam roller when I got home. Lots of fruits made it into me, as well as a few carbs.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just the overall lack of in only been running since labor day. However I set a new PR and continue to feel more confident.

Event comments:

Give it a 4 for a first time race but the times were all messed up from the timing company. Not much swag only a TShirt but a fun race and the timing is already moving to chips for next year.
