Pre-race routine:

Up at 6am, had oatmeal and then an extra large black Tim's on the way to Hamilton. Got to Copps at about 8:15am.
Event warmup:

Sat around at the stadium until 15 minutes to start. Then walked to the start.
  • 3h 07m 56s
  • 30 kms
  • 06m 16s  min/km

Good run, ran with Francois and kept a nice easy pace for the first 20k. Then picked it up a notch to get a negative split of 1:37 for first 15 and 1:30 for second 15. Started to drizzle in the last 4k, but over all nice conditions.
What would you do differently?:

Not a lot, was a well run race, with an almost 6 minute PB over last year.
Post race
Warm down:

Got food, went up to meet the gang in the stadium and then drove home. No, 3 hours later, am stretching a little. Will walk the dog in a while and that will help to keep the legs loose.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing really, except that this is probably as good as it gets.

Event comments:

Good race and it is nice to finish inside out of the rain.
