Pre-race routine:

I decided on the spur of the moment to get up and run this race. I decided it would count as a workout. I signed up race day, and got a really cool shirt. I met a really nice woman in the bathroom line, we had decided to get in line for the men's room because the line was shorter, turns out she does tris, is a lawyer too and just moved to Scottsdale from Oregon. We exchanged numbers to hook up for some training after the holidays.
Event warmup:

I took my shirt back to the car, put on my antlers and got ready to go. It was cold, but I knew I'd warm up soon
  • 33m 47s
  • 3.5 miles
  • 09m 39s  min/mile

I decided not to run/walk because I only really do that when I'm lazy. It was great to see so many people out running with their kids. This was a fun race, no numbers, no timing and it was great. A few inclines thrown in, but I managed my fastest pace ever. I think all the time on the bike has made a difference.
What would you do differently?:

Sign up earlier so I wouldn't have had to pay so much

Warm down:

Got some water, bagel and banana, talked with my new friend and her husband. I felt great, a little twinge in the knee, but feel really good.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I hate running, lol

Event comments:

This is a good family friendly race.
