Pre-race routine:

Slight stretching and race packet pick up. Jog to start helped warm myself up.

With all things considered I felt really good about this race. I had been up all night in a fishing tournament, then slept on a couch and ate a pre race meal of beer, snickers, and munchies. It was a last minute decision to do this run, but im glad i did. I had no run or read a elevation report of the route, just knew it was up up, then down down down.

I felt great through most of it. Could of pushed myself a bit more from miles 3-5. HR was good. It was the first 10k i had done in a few years. PR'd by a couple minutes on a hilly course. Well supported for a smaller race.
What would you do differently?:

Pace better in the mid miles.
Post race
Warm down:

jogged back to my sisters house. changed and headed back for awards ceremony.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Course knowledge, pre race nutrition

Event comments:

for 20$ it was a great 10K. goes to the kids scholorship foundation for the town of healdsburg. Great beautiful track with some good hills. I now remember why I no longer run 5, and 10k races. Cuz the dang High School kids come out and kick my butt! I believe the top three finishers were all under the age of 17. Wish i was 17 again :)
