Pre-race routine:

Find myself a spot in the corral.
Event warmup:

Ran the 15k
  • 30m
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 39s  min/mile

I wandered over to the start corral and tried to position myself under the “30 minute and under” sign. This race was a total cluster! I spent the first half of the race dodging traffic. I skipped the first water station because I didn’t want to deal with traffic. This was when I ran into Norm. He’s a police officer from a local city, he was doing the entire challenge, and he was cruising the 5k, too! We chatted, mostly about triathlons. I was happy and feeling good, despite racking up the miles.
