Pre-race routine:

I had been suffering from allergies for 3-4 days and the night before I probably got about 3-4 hours of sleep.
Event warmup:

I signed up and then laid down on a park bench wondering why I was doing this race since I felt like crap.
  • 22m 49s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 20s  min/mile

I started a little bit too far back, so I had to do some intense weaving to get to where I needed to be. That made a fun first mile or so as I just kept passing people. I was running w/o my Garmin and thought I had probably around gone 1 1/4 mile when I hit the 1 mile sign which really bummed me out. After that first mile I sorta just hung out and tried to keep going. I came out of the woods and saw I was under 23 minutes, and considering the circumstances I'll take it.
What would you do differently?:

More sleep the night before.

Warm down:

I laid down in the grass breathing for the first time in 4 days. Nothing like an intense run to clear the ole sinuses.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A lack of mental toughness.
