Pre-race routine:

stretch more, walked to start of race.. did walking calf raises to warm up and stretch achilles

Race never separated.. made it tough to get run rhythm.. this caused achilles to get very irritated towards in end of run..
What would you do differently?:

I think i would have started closer to the front of the pack. i don't know what i did to get this injury.. so i don't know what to do to prevent it.

could have used another water station in the race.. and also gatorade.. but food and beer were great..

You passed me about 2 miles in.  I was sticking to my slow pace or I would have run you down.  You lose points for not having a costume.  I agree about the water stations.  Too few and cramped into tight quarters.  I skipped them all... glad I was hydrated enough prerace.
