Pre-race routine:

Woke up, had bagel, coffee and 2 Cliff Shots and drove in to Boulder.
Event warmup:

Walked from my wife's volunteer location to start line, stretched and waited.
  • 1h 05m 11s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 10m 30s  min/mile

Great course with plenty of room despite lots of people. The hills and elevation pointed out the weak areas in my training. I also started overheating around the 4 mile mark and drank water at the aid stations, poured water over my head and ran through sprinklers along the course to keep cool. Overall had an even pace on the run with about a 7 second difference between the first half split and the second half.
What would you do differently?:

Train harder
Post race
Warm down:

Had a dark chocolate soy milk and a bagel, found the coffee tent and walked around the expo. Walked back to my wife's volunteer station, went to Starbucks and made it back for the International Competition.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training, specifically on hills.

Event comments:

This was my first time at this race and I'll definitely be back next year. It was amazing to see all the people out supporting the runners or giving them a beer or two. At the suggestion of a friend who ran the race before, I tried the bacon and will NOT do that again. It was a great time.
