Pre-race routine:

woke up around 7:15, showered and got dressed in the gear I had laid out the night before. Sleeveless base layer, long sleeve 2nd layer and a jogging jacket that I like. Tri shorts, cycling pants (without a chamois). Stopped on the way to the race to grab my favorite pre-race or pre-workout breakfast. Starbucks Oatmeal with Brown Sugar. YUM!!! Drove in with hubby and daughter, picked up chip and got ready to roll.
Event warmup:

some light jogging followed by stretching and hugs from my girl.
  • 42m 39s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 13m 43s  min/mile

I had trained and had hoped to stay with my training plan. I started out from the start with a jog, which is a departure from my normal start. I jogged until I was winded, and slowed to a walk. From that point, I alternated with a 1/1 jog/walk and stayed within myself. In previous races, I would try to stay within sight of someone and there pacing would be different and I would gas myself. I am very pleased with my race and my time.
What would you do differently?:

lack of training and being sick.

Event comments:

Loved this race and the organization was great!!! Hope they continue this race in the coming years under a different name. Great course and a good challenge.

No HR data as my HRM is lost. I hate that, but I did great.
Course: Loop course, start was mildly uphill and then a good downhill stretch through the first 3/4 mile. Remainder of the course was uphill until just past the 2 mile mark. Downhill, uphill, flat and then downhill into the finish.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Not enough
