Alpharetta, Georgia
United States
Alpharetta Junior Woman’s Club
85F / 29C
Total Time = 43m 10s
Overall Rank = 23/
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 3/
Pre-race routine:

Woke up and drove over to the race site from my house.
Event warmup:

Stretched and had a short warm up jog around the parking lot.
  • 43m 10s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 57s  min/mile

Legs were a little sore to begin with. Otherwise a good run. I went out way to quickly chasing some of the 5k runners (I didn't know that they were 5k runners at the time). First mile was 6:10, hit the second mile in under 13:00, and then began to fade a bit. Was able to run sub 7 minute miles until mile 5 then I really started to slow down.
What would you do differently?:

Start slower and settle into a groove and then turn on the jets for the second half of the race. I can't complain though, hardware again this race.
Post race
Warm down:

Drank water and cheered on other finishers.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Heat and humidity, and the fact that I have done virtually no speed work in weeks.

Event comments:

Good race for anyone looking for a Peachtree qualifying time.

Guess that's why they call you Rocket Man ... go out like a rocket and fizzle ......

10k is a hard race effort to judge because you know you need to have something left in the tank after the 4 mile mark.

Nice run though and good time! Congrats on the AG placement!
