Pre-race routine:

Ate a couple bagels with PB and had a couple bottles of water while on the train ride to the event. Found the TEAM SQUIRREL tent and had a little more water and a 5-Hour Energy and then went and joined the squirrels in the woods for some eco releif.
Event warmup:

Walked to the start line?

Comments:

Good flat fast run. Tried to beat 1:40:00 but failed. I thought I was on about a 1:38:00 pace but that didn't work out so well. Meh, no biggie. Great race though!
What would you do differently?:

Run faster at the beginning and from miles 8-10 so I wouldn't have had to push so hard the last 5K.
Post race
Warm down:

Got some water and my goodie bag and walked back to the TEAM SQUIRREL tent.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training, as usual.

Nicely done babe!

Maybe one day I'll be able to hold that pace for 1 mile... but probably not.

Dat's a VERY nice run, 2Goggs!

Problem - I need to know some more details, like did you text yourself, and do the Brits provide water and gels or tea and crumpets at the aid stations?
