Pre-race routine:

Not much of one, however I did eat 2 pop tarts approximately 1.45 hours before race time, also had a little water.
Event warmup:

  • 1h 24m 39s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 13m 39s  min/mile

Not a bad run, finished under my goal time which I was really happy about, had a mental melt down towards the end but with the help of my friends pushed through it.
What would you do differently?:

Not much, felt good, still need to work on my mental abilities when it comes to running. :)
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around a bit, had some water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My mental facilities. Could have pushed harder and need to work on that.

Event comments:

Only had one water station and it was after the 5 mile mark (I think) and that was it, could of used a few more, however for a first race and changing the time without really notifing everyone, not bad, I would do it again.
