Performance: Good
The first mile I got caught up in the excitement and went out way too fast 6:43 the next mile I slowed my pace a little 7:23 but still too fast by mile 3 I was alittle more settled in and was feeling pretty good... Mile 4 some more of the same felt pretty good then I got to mile 5 and I was'nt feeling so good legs started cramping a little( very slow pace ) When I finally reached the straight away with about 200 yds to go I broke out in a all out sprint and finished strong!!!! Looked over to my right to see my 3 yr old son and wife cheering me on as I crossed the finish line... ( what a great feeling to see them there cheering me on )
Course: Pretty flat.. Great support....
Keeping cool Good Drinking Not enough
