60F / 16C
Total Time = 1h 39m 28s
Overall Rank = 481/17608
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 28/2245
Pre-race routine:

Ate a nut and date bar, drove to the end of the course. Took the bus to the starting line, waited in line for port-a-potty, left just enough time to find my corral and do some stretching.
Event warmup:

Light stretching.
  • 1h 39m 28s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07s  min/mile

I felt so great during this run. The temperature, flat course, and cumulative training I've done led to a PR (by 8 minutes!!!) in the half mary.
What would you do differently?:

Absolutely nothing!
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing much, tried to walk around, stretch, eat/drink everything in sight while I waited for my mom to finish (she also came away with a PR!).

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing really. Started the race fast, and kept the pace up for the full 13.1 miles. The race stats break down your splits for each quarter of the run and I somehow managed to keep a VERY steady 7:42 min/mile until the last quarter where I kicked it in at 7:36! For me, this was by far my best-executed race yet.
