Pre-race routine:

just tried to stay warm and not explode from happiness, it was such a beautiful day!
Event warmup:

warm ups are for nerds
  • 38m 13s
  • 3.73 miles
  • 10m 15s  min/mile
What would you do differently?:

not sure, probably should have held back a little more in the middle, I was just excited to run fast after a very frustrating slow crowded start.

Also had one pretty bad spill, I was signaling to some crazy woman to just pass me on a steep incline (everyone was walking it we were packed in like sardines, there was no place to go, but she seemed determined) SO as she passed me she knocked me down (I'm pretty sure by accident, but still, it was way too narrow to pass safely, and there was nowhere to go) which a) really hurt and b) caused some minor chaos. Next time I will not try and be nice, it just fouled it up for everyone.
Post race
Warm down:

ate cookies and mini pecan pies, yes, pieS, and cheered others in.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

just not really very good at pushing myself/pacing myself/having a plan. I like to just go as fast or slow as I feel like at any given moment, and never really know what I am capable of.

Event comments:

gorgeous course, really nice people, great post-race food and goofy raffle stuff. This was a perfect 1st trail race. Can't wait to do it again next year and see if I can go faster and be safer.
