Bayou City Classic 10K
68F / 20C
Total Time = 42m 54s
Overall Rank = 127/1860
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 21/124
Pre-race routine:

Meet up with some friends and chatted a bit...
Event warmup:

Got in a 1 mile easy warm-up in with some pick-ups in there.
  • 00m
  • 6.21 miles
  •  min/mile

Went out a little fast... (20:57 1st 5K / 22:11 2nd 5K) the plan was to go out moderate and negative split my way home. I hadn't trained for this race really at all. Had just come off of 4 weeks of no running (with only 1 week of easy build), so I originally planned to just go out and have fun with it. But I really felt good and got caught up in the moment. All in all, it ended up being a great day to run. I even PR'd by over a minute. Right knee (previous IT issue) feels great, no problems at all!
What would you do differently?:

Not go out so fast on untrained legs and lungs...

Warm down:

Stood around and enjoyed Saint Arnold Lawnmower Draft Beer and breakfast tacos with some great friends! Life is Good!
