Pre-race routine:

Drove to race with Kathy Cheng and Angel Salom. Woke up late, so didn't have time to eat. Had to inhale a tortilla right before the race started.

2 miles easy.

Good race. Started out in 4th and stayed there until the turn. Kept a 7:00 pace for 1st half (was holding back). Took off at the turn and took 2nd by mile 10. Was absolutley dead by mile 11 so wasn't able to finish sub-90 min.
What would you do differently?:

Gu at the turn and wait until mile 8 to take off.
Post race
Warm down:

1.5 miles

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Pushed too hard at turn. Bad nutrition plan.
