Pre-race routine:

Got there early as parking is tough for this event. Used facilities and lined up in the 1:40 pace area.
Event warmup:

stretched a little while waiting for the start
  • 1h 37m 7s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 25s  min/mile

fairly good run overall. Love the course, only two hills and the last 3 miles is pretty much all downhill. Storms that were supposed to hit stayed away and the wind wasnt to bad. Really humid though.
What would you do differently?:

Started a little slow, couldve finished a little stronger.
Post race
Warm down:

drank my chocolate milk and walked around for a bit. headed home quick so the Mrs. didnt get to mad at me. I have another 5 races over the next 8 weeks.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

first race of the season and been working harder on the bike and swim.

Event comments:

Great race every year. Thats why it sells out so fast.

Great run! You fast guys make us slow guys look bad when we pass the crowd. Laughing

Definitely a fun race, 2nd year we've run it but I only ran the 5k last year.

Nice work out there Jon.  Sounds like it was a fun event, maybe next year I'll catch it.  And it WON'T be an 8:15 pace thing either, more like 7:15, you should be up for that by next year.  Keep strong my friend.
