28F / -2C
Total Time = 36m 30s
Overall Rank = 765/2681
Age Group = 36
Age Group Rank = 186/388
Pre-race routine:

Had a muffin and some Propel Fitness water, read the paper and relaxed prior to leaving
Event warmup:

Tried to stay warm and loose. The cold weather really tightened up my legs.
  • 36m 30s
  • 4.35 miles
  • 08m 23s  min/mile

So many people, it was hard to get out and find a good pace. Was weaving through people for the first 2-2.5 miles. This probably helped, as I had a ton of energy for the last 2 miles.
What would you do differently?:

I would have tried to get to the front quicker. I ran with a friend until he fell back at about mile 3-3.5. Once He fell back I picked up the pace and finished strong.
Post race
Warm down:

Had some food and some beer. (Free beer for St. Patty's day.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Crowds and hills. I could have done probably about 2-3 minutes faster.

Event comments:

This is a good run especially early in the season if your not looking to PB. Was a little cold due to the snow and wind.
