Thanksgiving Day Race
40F / 4C
Total Time = 48m 4s
Overall Rank = 1302/13870
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 121/777
Pre-race routine:

Got tired of waiting in traffic for the free lots so paid $5 to park at 3rd and Vine. My wife and I met up with a friend at packet pickup. 6 years in a row and 8 out of the last 9 running this one!
Event warmup:

I ran about 1.5 miles trying to find a toilet where I didn't need to wait in line for 20 minutes. I succeeded, but it was a port-a-john covered in crap and w/o toilet paper. Even win you win, you lose.
  • 48m 4s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 44s  min/mile

I knew I would be slower than last year but I was hoping to minimize the damage. I went out fairly fast, realized I didn't have it this year, and jogged it in.
What would you do differently?:

Train more!
Post race
Warm down:

Froze while waiting for my wife and friend to finish. Excited to find they both PR'ed!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training!

Event comments:

I wish they hadn't closed off the lower level of Paul Brown Stadium. Much fewer bathrooms than normal because of this.
