Crazy Legs Classic - Run

View Member's Race Log
Madison, WI
United States
47F / 8C
Total Time = 35m 41s
Overall Rank = 519/1220
Age Group = 50
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Slept at brother/sister-in-law's home. Slept well. Had a waffle and coffee for breakfast. Stretched
Event warmup:

Stretched more at the site and ran 3 laps around the state Capitol building at a slow jog.
  • 35m 41s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 08s  min/mile

Had a great run. Kept a good pace - sub-7 minute but got screwed on time because of big crowd.
What would you do differently?:

Start closed to the front. Got in line at the 6.5-minute pace group and ran first mile in 7:46, 2nd in 7:14, 3rd in 6:50, 4th in 7 and 5th in 6:46.
Post race
Warm down:

A slow walk around the finish, bananas and oranges and water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Starting too far back and too many slower runners to pass.

Event comments:

A great race overall, but the one thing that could be improved were the after-race facilities. The water, bananas, oranges and beer (for those who wanted it) were 50 rows up at Camp Randall Staidum. This race finishes on the 50 yard line at the football stadium. I think they wanted to keep banana and orange peels off their new surface.

Great time.  Negative splits each mile.  Very impressive.  I've been to Madison.  Lots of nice places to run.
