Pre-race routine:

Clif bar for breakfast
got registered, huddled in the car to stay warm until about 25 minutes before the start and hit the porta potty.
Event warmup:

  • 42m 24s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 13m 38s  min/mile

Hr rate was really high at the start maybe since it was my 1st race in over a year, or maybe I need a new battery for heart rate monitor. Started out near the back and walked for the 1st half mile and then started running until the heart rate got too high then started walking to recover. Played leapfrog with one guy towards the end but couldn't get the heart rate down enough to stay with him.
What would you do differently?:

nothing did the best I could with what my body will let me do.
