Event warmup:

ran about a half a mile, not enough.
  • 1h 02m 15s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 10m 01s  min/mile

Worst run Ive done overall, but it was pretty fun and challenging. Went from running around a 7:30 marathon 3 months ago to a 10k on this day at over 10 min per mile. Running through 8 inches of snow was a lot more difficult than I thought. Beyond that, I still performed terribly, just didn't have it. Also fell 4 times during the race. One time a guy right in front of me toppled over and I fell over him and cut my leg on his shoe. Still, it was a fun time.
What would you do differently?:

Not really sure.

Warm down:

hot chocolate

What limited your ability to perform faster:

1. Snow 2. Was not mentally tough today. 3. With a ton of racers, some being kids that started way in the front co,upled with very very narrow trails made it very hard to pass people 3 I was sick for two days prior to race however I felt fine the day of the race, don't know if this affected me.

Event comments:

For a 10k with no timer, it was well orgainized.
