Pre-race routine:

showed up and registered, I was a little late and it took a little more time to get my kids signed up for their one mile run than I'd planned, so no time for chit chat or warmups.
Event warmup:

no warm up. Well, I did jog the 100 yards or so from the registration desk to the start line.
  • 33m 56s
  • 4 miles
  • 08m 29s  min/mile

Good run. A little slower than last year, but I'm not in nearly as good running shape right now so it's about what I expected.

mile 1: 7:56 (flat, and a little caught up in the excitement of the start...)
mile 2: 9:04 (this had the big hill)
mile 3: 8:32 (some up and downs)
mile 4: 8:17 (mostly flat, a little sprint at the finish)
What would you do differently?:

run more.
Post race
Warm down:

annual all you can eat pancake breakfast, followed by sitting in a lawn chair for three hours watching the local parade!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I did fine.

Event comments:

good enough. Just a local little race. Would have been nice to maybe have someone announcing names as we finished or at least do something, it was just sort of over...
