Pre-race routine:

Up at 5:30. Out the door at 5:45 to pick up mom. She was doing the 5K.
Event warmup:

Parked. Went to packet pick up and sat on the curb waiting for the start. Had a Honey Stinger Waffle about 10 minutes before start.

I like this course. Starts on O'Connor and about a mile in goes onto the multi-use trail. The name of the race is deceptive as there are no hills. I think the old original course was hilly.

Did not feel great going into this. Ran really hard Friday night at a local 5K then walked 1:30 with Steve yesterday. My left hip and quad were sore.

Once I started running I felt good. Decided to run and walk the aid stations. After seeing that the first mile was sub-11, decided to make that my goal for the run. Ended up averaging 10:54 so I was quite happy.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Like this course.
Post race
Warm down:

Got some water and headed back to the car to go get breakfast.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Need more speedwork. I have been saying this forever. One of these days I will actually do some.

Event comments:

Like this course so will do this race again
