Pre-race routine:

I love races with 2PM start times. I had a leisurely morning and a nice breakfast around 11:30.
Event warmup:

My wife and I jogged around the start line for about 5 minutes prior to the race. But I didn't warmup at all. It was cold!
  • 37m 24s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 29s  min/mile

What a difference a year makes. I was only 40 seconds slower than last year (when I won my age group) but I was 14th this year. It all depends who shows up!

Anyways, though I was slower I had a much better race than last year all things considered. Last year I was still hanging on to Marathon shape as opposed to this year where I've done hardly anything since the HIM. I ran this race smart though. I started off easy, and then picked it up and just maintained the pace I wanted. I never felt bad and I avoided the stupidity of last year (Mile 1 - 6:24, Mile 5 - 8:01)
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I accomplished what I set out to accomplish for this one.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed some cookies and licorice and cheered on my wife as she finished

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training. As usual!

Event comments:

A great race to do before the Super Bowl!
