Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

walked to the start line, had bought some throw aways from good will the day before, was actually good stuff a Easy bay wind suit...hated to throw it away at the third mile but I Was hot, it cost 2.00 haha
  • 2h 25m 4s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 04s  min/mile

It was great, my first 1/2 and I wanted to break 2;30, took me three minutes to get to the start line (3000 runners full and half had the same route/start line), but they gace you official time (mine was 2;28) and chip adjusted time which was 2:25
What would you do differently?:

Maybe train more....nahh, my longest run to date had been 9 miles and I walked a lot
Post race
Warm down:

walked to the food/beer tents, took a pic and walked back to my vehicle

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Genetics, laziness, too many wings....I decided to start slow and once I got to the 10 mile mark to ramp it up if I felt good, got to 10 mile mark in 1:58, so I ran 10 min miles for the last three....

Event comments:

This would be a good race for your first one, and if you wanted to do a fast one, it worked good for me, I had been doing a lot of longer miles on the run and bike during the winter. They have a century the next day starting from the same place and I did it as well,,,,and it was cheap like 25.00. The race expo was excellent as well.
