Pre-race routine:

Not much... trained very little for this race and hadn't run at all in 3-4 weeks. Was hoping to have built up enough of a base over the past few years just to finish. Went in with very low expectations.
Event warmup:

10 minutes of stretching. Ate a banana
  • 30m 51s
  • 3.25 miles
  • 09m 29s  min/mile

How the hell do you get lost on a 5k course??? Especially when you're a middle-of-the-pack runner??? With about 3/10th of a mile to go, there was nobody in front of me. There was a cop standing on a corner ahead... I shrugged my shoulders and he pointed to the right. So I made a right. About 2 blocks later, a gentleman tapped me on the shoulder and told me I made a wrong turn, so I had to backtrack. Had a good laugh about that.
What would you do differently?:

Pay attention to where I'm going.
Post race
Warm down:

drank water, stretched.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not training at all. Not being prepared AT ALL.

Event comments:

I'm an idiot. :-(

Great job considering the wrong turn and NO TRAINING?! ;-)  Those police directing traffic can be confusing though!
