Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5:25, ate a cinnamon raisin bagel and headed to the race - got there with an hour to spare but it took an hour to park (800 m from the start).
Event warmup:

walking to the start line ;)

I knew a few weeks out that I wasn't in the shape that I needed to be in to get a personal best so i decided to pace my MIL to a good finish for her. We started out strong and kept it up pretty well throughout the race. we were through the 10K mark in :59. Shortly after the 10K mark there was the only significant hill in the entire course. MIL struggled up the hill a little bit and after that she slowed down a bit. She also needed to use the bathroom but every porta-potty we passed between 10 and 16 km had a pretty long line. we passed one around 17 km that didn't have a line but she declined to stop and use it. In the last mile we started to pick up the pace a bit but her tummy hurt to much so we slowed down and took it easy the last 600 or so metres.

Warm down:

an hour (HOUR!) searching for my DH at the finish line. I felt so bad that he came down to the finish line. it was crazy busy down there.
