Pre-race routine:

Drove up and left around 815 to get up in time, went and registered, then popped some coffee from the Y in, changed, took a dump (thank GOD!), then began warmup
Event warmup:

about 1.25 miles on course, about 8:13 mile pace...honestly felt a little tight...
  • 20m 49s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 41s  min/mile

Felt really strong up front after running over a kid, lost no speed since the season ended which is great,
What would you do differently?:

Not run over the kid and lose weight, maybe push more towards the end...I had some left..
Post race
Warm down:

Ran another 1.25 or so, around 8:30 pace...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight and some mental toughness

Event comments:

Good race, but not many good snacks afterwards, lots of waiting around time, still great competition and many volunteers, though most of them weren't cheering...a bit disorganized inside...
