Pre-race routine:

Woke up around 5:45. Ate a bowl of oatmeal & drank a huge cup of coffee. Out the door by 6:45.
Event warmup:

Slow jog.
  • 1h 36m
  • 10 miles
  • 09m 36s  min/mile

First 5 miles were run at 9:52. Last 5 miles were run at 9:32. I did exactly what I'd planned - tried to go 10 m/m for the first half of the race, pick it up in the last 5, and sprint the last 1.5. My last mile was 8:32.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretch and lots of water. I didn't have anything to eat following the race, so I vomited 6 times when I got home. Had to lie on the couch for an hour because every time I stood up I thought I was going to pass out. Hmmm. I think I had low blood sugar or something.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just need to keep up with my tempo runs.

Event comments:

The race is a keeper! I'll be doing it again next year!!!
