Pre-race routine:

Up at 5:30, Steel cut oats with raisins and bananas and COFFEE!! Left for packet pickup at 6:45.
Event warmup:

Three trips to the port-a-potties before the race. I was well hydrated. LOL Met up with Samantha waited . . .
  • 2h 16m 34s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 10m 25s  min/mile

I was able to settle in behind a father running with his two daughters. It was a good pace that challenged me just a little. I kept reminding me to just focus on "my" run and not get to distracted with other things. This worked really well for the most part--much better than for any other race I've done so far.
What would you do differently?:

I really don't think there's any thing I could have done differently for this one. More hill training would have helped, but I had to back off that a little because I was having some pain and didn't want to risk an injury.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked to the car to clean up and put some warmer clothes on. Then went back to the post-race tent and got a water and a granola bar. Had my feet massaged. This was the first race I've ever been in where the line for massages wasn't a mile long. Then to the Irish Lion for lunch!!

Performance: Good
Course: This course is HILLY. You're either going up or down, but there's nothing flat. It's a beautiful course that starts out going through downtown Bloomington, winding through the campus, and then some very pretty residential neighborhoods.
