Total Time = 30m 39s

Age Group Rank = 5/6
Pre-race routine:

got up at 6 ate a bagel for breakfast. got to race around 6:45 registered and chatted with a few other runners.
Event warmup:

5 minutes of stretching 1/4 mile jog out and back at start of course
  • 30m 39s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 52s  min/mile

started off a little faster than I usually do. even though it was a local 5k it was the first time I've run this course so I didn't know it was going to be as hilly as it was.
What would you do differently?:

start out slower and try to negative split.

Post race
Warm down:

ate half a banana and drank some water. stretched and waited for results and raffle at end. Won a hat! :) yah for free stuff

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of hill training
my weight
heart rate jumped up faster than during my training runs

Event comments:

PR by 26 seconds on a much harder course !! :) can't wait to do a 5k on a flat course now. This was part 2 of a triple crown challenge that I think i'll try next year, either that or do the half marathon.
