Total Time = 1h 30m 52s
Overall Rank = 100/2154
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 9/153
Pre-race routine:

Woke-Up, toke a shower, ate small amount of Oatmeal and sipped on a bottle of Infinit Run formula. Caffeine Pill about 1 1/12 prior.
Event warmup:

Jogged for 1/2 mile and then stretched. Ran another 1/2 mile with some pick-ups in between. Jogged down the hill to the race start so maybe another .30 mile or so.
  • 1h 30m 52s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 06m 56s  min/mile

My best race to date. Wanted to average sub 7:00 for the race and prescribed by my coach Lar-Dog (Who had a foot issue about 2.25 miles into the race). Best RUn race results to date. Ended up 9th out of 153 (Top 6%) and 100 out of 2154 (Top 4.6%). First Top 10 AG Run finsih and first Top 100 Overall RUn Finish.
What would you do differently?:

Might be able to press some of my splits but not knowing the course and the number of hills, I tried to keep it at a strong but reasonable pace.
Post race
Warm down:

Jog for about .25 miles and did lots of stretching. Had a bottle of Recovery (Infinit + EAS Protein) and a cup of Chili.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing. Just experience.

Event comments:

For the coast, this is a great race. Liked the Chili and Pasta that they had for after the race. Lots of aid stations BUT, I would have liked to seen more of them having Electrolytes.

Well done.
