Sit under the bridge trying to stay out of the rain

  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 02s  min/mile

Cold rain to start the run. Slow first mile to warm up. Hadn't planned on any sort of pace but since the weather was throwing a wrench in our MT biking plans I decided to go for it at mile 2. Ran an 8 min mile first mile. Since I started in the back of the pack so I was dodging runners up to the first Aid station. That's where I dropped the jacket and picked up the pace. Wasn't too concerned about pace until the last 3-4 miles when I realized I was on track for a new PR and stepped it up. ran a 6:40 for the last mile and felt pretty good.
What would you do differently?:

Warm up and start at a quicker pace. Good PR by 10+ minutes. First race I have ever run for time....even tho that's not the way it started.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk and get out of the rain.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Poor warmup in the cold weather.

Event comments:

Good fun race to get the year started.
