Pensacola, Florida
United States
65F / 18C
Total Time = 18m 43s
Overall Rank = 3/278
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 2/
Pre-race routine:

Got the kids up and some food in them. I ate half a bagel. Then we drove to the course.
Event warmup:

I ran about a mile with the kids to warm them up, then another mile with some pickups for my own warmup.
  • 18m 43s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 01s  min/mile

I was clearly in 3rd place after mile 1. I didn't feel like trying to put in the effort to get 2nd (and probably wouldn't have succeeded anyway) , and 4th place was well behind me, so I just cruised it in. This race was never about actual overall time anyway. Hey, I won a free pair of shoes (for 'first place' masters, although the overall winner was also a masters runner) -- who can complain about that?

The race was much hillier than I expected.

It was a nice race through a pretty area of Pensacola.
