Festival of the Bells
75F / 24C
Total Time = 31m 46s
Overall Rank = 85/153
Age Group = 31-49
Age Group Rank = 11/33
Pre-race routine:

Walked with a relative, Brent, from my house up to the starting line. Registered and chatted with our friend Becky and the Boones until the race began.
Event warmup:

Nothing. I think it works best for me.
  • 31m 46s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 15s  min/mile

I loved that they moved this race from Liberty Park to the streets of uptown Hillsboro. They had triple the participants from last year and people could cheer for you from their porches.
What would you do differently?:

I was much faster than I'd expected. I would have to say run with Brent again.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked back to my house with Brent, shot some more photos of other events at the festival and then went grocery shopping.

My Garmin actually logged the distance at 2.92 miles.
