Pre-race routine:

Wake up @ 4:30 am, got ready and went down to motel lobby for some breakfast. Dropped off at bus stop @ 5:30 am. Rode the bus up to the start and arrived @ 6:15 am. Took the time to try and find some friends at the start. Only bumped into one person I knew. Listened to some energetic music 10 min prior to race.
Event warmup:

Walk/pace back and forth around start area to warmup the legs. Ran about 1/2 mile back and forth about 10 min before race, with some light stretching.
  • 1h 44m 10s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 57s  min/mile

Broke down mentally after 10 mi. Couldn't seem to persevere through the last parts that really get tough.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure I follow a better training plan, and be sure to prepare with more long runs. I think I cheated myself this time because I really didn't run that many long ones.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mental strength (as always). Gotta figure that part out. I'd like to drop about 10-15 lbs too, so I can be a lightweight rocket :)

Event comments:

This race is great. That's why I keep coming back!

Performance: Average
Course: Slight uphill at mile 2, then some rolling hills for next couple of miles (but hardly anything to cry about), and then downhill for next 8-9 miles. After that, flattens out with some short roll-y stuff on a trail until the last section, a straight shot right to the finish on a flat street.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
