Pre-race routine:

Wake-up call wasn't bad since we live maybe 7 miles from the race site, so we didn't have to get up excessively early. Had some coffee, of course.
Event warmup:

Just some light jogging. Not much endurance now-a-days, so I have to
walk that fine line between warming up my muscles and pooping myself out before the race!
  • 26m 3s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 23s  min/mile

For the shape I'm in, I'm thrilled w/ my time. When I turned for the finish line and saw how close I was to being under 26:00 I tried to hammer to get there, but it wasn't to be. Can't have everything...where would you put it??!
Also, I love running w/ the Garmin. It helps remind me of my current speed, so I don't go too fast at the beginning. Otherwise my mile splits would NOT be nearly as consistent as they were.

What would you do differently?:

Be healthy, have no shoulder problems, bunions or neuromas in my feet.

Post race
Warm down:

lots of walking, some gentle stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

out of shape
