Rochester, Minnesota
United States
40F / 4C
Total Time = 20m 29s
Overall Rank = 5/110
Age Group = M50-59
Age Group Rank = 2/6
Pre-race routine:

Honey Nut Cheerios about 7:10. Stretched a little.
Event warmup:

Got to Running Room about 8:40 for 9:00 start. Some easy running with some strides at close to race pace.
  • 20m 29s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 35s  min/mile

I have not done any speedwork so I wasn't sure what to expect. Went out what felt comfortable and ended up at 6:40 first mile. I tried to keep that pace for 2nd mile and did. I was running 7th, Mark and Andy were long gone but I was close to next 4. Mile 3 started to hurt but I picked off 2 guys and was gaining on the next who had been running together the whole race. I ended up 4 seconds behind them in 5th overall. Each mile got a little faster. Realistically I was hoping to go under 7:00 pace, 6:36 is great for first race. Only 30 seconds from sub-20.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe stay with Michael and Marie when they passed me and get them at the end. Marie is 50F and Michael 57M so we had 3 50 year olds in top 5.
Post race
Warm down:

Ran around SF then caught up to Mark and Chris (w/Porter) and Kyle and ran 2 miles of race route.
