Pre-race routine:

Up @ 5 am made a bagel with ham a cheese, stopped at Holiday for some Crangrape juice and ate on the way. (also had my vitamins, Naproxen, and Joint Soother).
Event warmup:

Stretched for 10 minutes and did some short intervals about 1/4 of the way around the lake and back.
  • 38m 14s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 12m 17s  min/mile

Focused in on a well known 70 year old racewalker and did my best to catch him. I never did but it helped me keep my pace up. Talked to him after the race and he wanted to get a pair of my Loco racing flats.
What would you do differently?:

Given my condition (cold) not much. I was at 2 minutes the first mile I just ran out of steam.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched alittle and walked a bit

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Being sick with a cold didn't help. I didn't seem to get too winded but just didn't have my normal snap.

Event comments:

After getting home I crashed in bed and slept for two hours!
