4C / 39F
Total Time = 1h 51m 2s
Overall Rank = 150/196
Age Group = MS
Age Group Rank = 29/
Pre-race routine:

Machiatto :)

Very cold and windy weather. Thinking about what to wear. No extra warm up. My first actual race. Very proud.

Two days before the race no running.
Event warmup:

No warm up.
  • 1h 51m 2s
  • 21.1 kms
  • 05m 16s  min/km

Cold and windy weather. First 3-4k ran 5min/km, which is very good pace for me. This hit me a bit in the end. But you run along with people mass and they kinda make you go faster. My first race. Very proud.
What would you do differently?:

First 5k slower.
Post race
Warm down:

Just stretching around two minutes.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I maybe should have put less weight in terms of clothes. I ran with hooded sweatshirt because of cold and windy weather. But I noticed I shouldn't have done differently because I am intolerant to cold (unfortunately). Once I warmed up, I believe this backed me down (especially in the last 5k), but I am very satisfied overal with my decisions considering complete race.

Pre-race injuries
Left knee - lateral/colateral ligament pain when under stress
Right ankle - By feel I would say it's Calcaneo fibular ligament
I felt my ankle ligament some 10 days before the race, and it didn't stop hurting. During the race I felt it all the way.

Event comments:

My first race. Very proud of my time.

Ankle ligament (right foot) problem before the race made it more harder for me to run. The same day (afternoon) ankle little swollen.
