Total Time = 1h 06m
Overall Rank = /
Age Group =
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Not much just chilling and watching the crowd grow and grow.
Event warmup:

Some light streching and watching the crowd grow.
  • 1h 06m
  • 6.21 miles
  • 10m 38s  min/mile

Good run had to walk a couple of aid stations and hills but almost all running. Man there were lots of people and also was above average first time in a race I was 17 thousand something out of 40 thousand so I was happy about that. The winner was over the finish line before I was even over the START due to wave starts.
What would you do differently?:

Run more and run faster and perhaps carry my own gatoraid as the didn't have anything but water.
Post race
Warm down:

Lots of streching espcially my left leg

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Too fat to run fast as well as not being in good shape and my left leg sucks, too many walkers on course and no gatoraide.

Event comments:

Great race and awesome crowd a lot of partcipants, however gatoraide would have helped

Way to go Neil! Sucks about the Gatorade though. Whenever they have that stuff at races I'm usually the guy that thinks it's water and splashes it on my face, very refreshing...NOT!
We still have to get out for a bike ride one day soon.
