Pre-race routine:

Took the T to race site. Picked up race number. Found TriToy and her son. I put my stuffs in her car - decided to wear light but was a bit cool when standing around, so we hung out as a Starbucks to keep warm.
Event warmup:

Joggled for ~10 min and stretched. Right achilles was very tight.
  • 39m 39s
  • 4 miles
  • 09m 55s  min/mile

First time doing this race Quite a number of people (2000s?) but not as crazy as the Feaster 5 or the Corporate Challenge.
Line up at race start toward the back of the crowd. TriToy went a bit ahead and I kind of pace with her son for the first mile. This kid was on turbo. Then I started to feel thirsty. Looked around hoping to see a water station. Lost TriToy's son. Mile 2 water station - I was drinking like a fish. Was surprised to see 19:50 at the Mile-2 sign considered I had to walk a few seconds here and there due to the achilles thing. Continued my rhythm of short stride and higher cadence. Worked up a good sweat. Happy to see 39:39 at the finish.
What would you do differently?:

Need to hydrate more before race. Should have get some water while hanging out.

Warm down:

Walked to TryToy's car

Event comments:

A good way to burn some calories before the turkey dinner, and pies plus other food.
