Wish I had gone out faster& could have skipped the bathroom breaks. Added a min or so each, & I don't usually have to stop on weekend long runs. But under 2:30, which is what I wanted. Never had to walk, & finished@ a good pace. Just wish I could have started w& maintained that 10:40 or 10:50. Brand new garmin, maybe I just never saw how erratic my pace was before& just had some baseless delusion about consistency.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe have tried to hit the bathroom before the start v@ the third mi. Truly had to pee already when the gun went off. Would have eliminated@ least one of the bathroom breaks.
Post race
Warm down:

Froze my butt off waiting for the shuttle back to the start! Actually very well run, w the bag check I was able to change into warmer cloths, a very well run race& not too huge.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Bathroom breaks. Tried to avoid dehydration ahead of time & apparently over did it!

Event comments:

Really fun! As fun as running can be for a non runner.
