Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

I had some oatmeal and a bannana 3 hours before the race started. I had to rush 10 minutes before the race to get my shoes on and stuff ready because my timing was off.
Event warmup:

no warm up, just running from the porta pottys to the tent to get ready
  • 7h 00m 33s
  • 31.07 miles
  • 13m 32s  min/mile

I was able to run almost this whole event. I did have to take 3 bathroom breaks, one of them emergent.
What would you do differently?:

I had gotten injured 6 weeks before the race on a long run. So I pretty much did a 5 week taper. I was real worried about this. The longest distance I ran in this training was 20 miles and that was 5-6 weeks before the race. Now I know if you can run 10 you can run 30 miles:)
Post race
Warm down:

no time to warm-down. The kids were there and I was immediatly on the go.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The fact that I am not fast. If I want to be faster I have to train to be faster.

Event comments:

The Aid stations were wonderful and so were the people working them.
