Pre-race routine:

Drove down real early and got a primo parking spot. If you're looking to park here next year, try to find the library employee parking. Super close!
Event warmup:

Jogged a bit.
  • 55m 6s
  • 8 miles
  • 06m 53s  min/mile

As all the other RRs point out, there were a lot of slow people in front. I felt bad inching up to the 4:30mi/min section, until I saw my peers. If I had to do over again, I'd fight all the way to the front. I wasted a lot of energy during that first mile.

My plan was to try to run 7min miles. I felt pretty good at 6:30 and slowed going up hill or when I wasn't focusing. I wanted to kick the last mile, but I just didn't have anything in the tank. I almost hurled at the finish.
What would you do differently?:

line up closer to the front.

Warm down:

Walked around looking for my people.

Event comments:

A lot of people. But fun.
