Pre-race routine:

Woke up around 4:45 had P B and J sandwich with water and drove into The Woodlands to the race. I went and registered then took my stuff back to the car and sat in it for 10-15 mintues to stay a little warm. Few bathroom breaks and looked for friends.
Event warmup:

Ran throught the parking lot.
  • 1h 15m 34s
  • 10 miles
  • 07m 34s  min/mile

I was using this race as a gage for my HIM next month. I started out pretty solid, but was able to hold a conversation the first 8 miles. At mile 8 my friend told me to go ahead because his knee hurt and he said I was looking strong. I ended up running the last 2 miles in 12 minutes. I think I may have blown up if I was not pacing with my friend, but all together I was 5 min faster than my original goal.
What would you do differently?:

push harder. I need to learn my limits

Warm down:

beer/ bananna/burger/beer
