Pre-race routine:

Woke up in Omaha to hail, lightening and a downpour! Actually delayed our leaving by about 15 min.
Event warmup:

Waiting in line last minute for the port-a-potty
  • 2h 16m 56s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 10m 27s  min/mile

Was supposed to be rainy/overcast, but was sunny and hot. Glad I brought my sunglasses! Got pretty warm around mile 8. Supposed to be an easy run so I ran at a nice "happy pace".
What would you do differently?:

Try drinking a little Gatorade in addition to water.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked back to cheer friend that was running her 1st HM, then walked out on the course and walked the last 1.5 miles in with my Mom that was walking the half.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight and focusing on HIM in June.

Event comments:

Wave start= slow start, felt like we waited around FOREVER, but part of the reason was I was running slow, so I started further back than in the past.
