Pre-race routine:

I had taken about a month off of running trying to heal some Achilles tendinitis. I'm stupid though, so I decided to run this race anyways. I ran 3 miles on Friday and it went okay, so I decided to give it a go!
Event warmup:

Checked in with my team for the ORRRC season (got a nice singlet for $10 and a nice long sleeve tee coming soon for another $10). Chatted with some folks I hadn't seen since I disappeared into my IM training last year.
  • 38m 36s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 43s  min/mile

Nothing to get excited about really. Nice to know that IM shape means I can take a month off of running and still drop a sub 7:45 on a 5 Miler. After my little run on Friday I decided to shoot for a 7:45. Banked some time on the first 3 miles then cruised in.
What would you do differently?:

I don't know... I love racing so much I'm having a hard time trying to get this Achilles thing solved.
Post race
Warm down:

Chatted with the guy who finished right behind me who happened to be on the same team. Grabbed a banana and some cookies and headed out.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training. If I had ran the last month I probably could have gone 7:15. No biggie though. This race has tons of fast people in it. You want in the Top 100 you better go sub 7. Crazy in a 500 person race!

Event comments:

You can't beat the ORRRC. $3 for a great race!
