Pre-race routine:

Austin got his licence! Then we went to Eau Clair where we relaxed and talked for awhile before the race. Didn't start until 1:00. Hilary and the kids ate lunch while I got my stuff together.
Event warmup:

A little bit of hopping around to get the blood flowing.

Run felt good. Kept my nike pace around 5:20 for the first 18-19k then steped it up a bit was trying for under 5 but I didn't quite make it. Finished strong with nothing left in the tank... just like it's supposed to be!
What would you do differently?:

Get my long runs in during training.

Warm down:

Sat at a table trying not to puke... Hahaha... then I went and got ready to go to the ballet with Hilary! First time.. and we will be doing that again! Stunning... and the ballet was pretty good too...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training... long runs.

Event comments:

Didn't hit the post race activities due to my planning a date with Hilary to the Ballet... But if it was anything like the race it would have been great!

Performance: Good
Course: Relatively flat course, from Eau Claire to Bowness and back along the river. It was nice because I had actually ran this before Melissa's in the summer last year, so I had a pretty good idea of what the course was like.
