Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5:20, wet down my hair and got dressed. Forgot the body glide today, which I'm regretting now (but not too bad!) Toasted PBJ, banana and coffee for breakfast. Then out the door with Glenn (my father-in-law) to downtown. Once at the start site, I went into the Metrodome to use the facilities, but found long lines everywhere! I then decided I could hold off for the time being. Found the port-a-johns by my corral, which also had a long line. Ended up only having time for 1.
Event warmup:

Ran about 4 blocks from where I was dropped off, otherwise just did some light stretching and stood in a port-a-john line.
  • 1h 18m 18s
  • 10 miles
  • 07m 50s  min/mile

Felt great. A lot of traffic at the start prevented me from really getting going until I crossed the Franklin St Bridge. At mile 8, my brother-in-law was setting his medical tent, and ran with me for around 100 yards. IT band flaired at finish, but tried to still finish strong.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really. Maybe get a better starting spot in the corral, and maybe push the pace a little more. Overall felt it was just about right.

Fantastic job!   I am glad that I got to the dome fairly early and got in the potty line right away
