Pre-race routine:

Got to the venue at 7:30, got great parking space. Picked up chip and wanderd the area before going back to the car to keep warm.
Event warmup:

Ran 1k around the parking lot about 30 minutes before the start. Maybe should have done the warm up near the start time as was pretty cold again by start time.
  • 53m 8s
  • 10 kms
  • 05m 19s  min/km

Started off in the Yellow Corale (not sure why), but kept with the pack for the first 2K. Finished the first 2K in under 10 minutes (a little fast). So slowed down a bit and walked the second water station after taking some water. Ran the rest at an easy pace, but also walked the hilly before the stairs. Last K I tried to speed up and was successful in passing a few people. Forgot how hilly the terrain is, but was pretty happy to have beaten last years time by 3+ minutes.
What would you do differently?:

Start off slower and try for a negative split. More hills on the second half.

Warm down:

Wandered back to the car, changed into warmer clothes and then wandered back to the food area. Had food and then watched the 5K and the Cub run.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Taking off too fast at the start.

Event comments:

Good race.
