Comments:

Started off fast.... first mile was fairly flat, so tried to back off just a bit on the 2nd mile, and tried to recover a little bit on the downhills, while trying to pick up some speed at the same time. Did well on the uphills and was able to sprint at the finish.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, good race!
Post race
Warm down:

None. Saw a few people I knew and chatted. Tried to wait out the puke feeling... after about 20 minutes I got a water and a bagel and waited for the awards.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Still feeling some tightness from last weekend's injury, probably could have done a little faster if I had been 100%.

Event comments:

I love this little local race... I can walk there and walk home and I get to run the race route as a regular run. Beautiful weather this morning, 40's and sunny. And a PR!
