Event warmup:

Running from porta john to the start line :-)

Made 5th woman overall. Was in 3rd overall and first in AG until climb at mile 28.5.

Goal was to keep pace under 12:00 average. I made it on my watch, but my Garmin had 31.49 as the distance.
What would you do differently?:

Still need more work on uphills.
Post race
Warm down:

EXTREME soreness. Tried to walk it out, but it was really bad.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Still working on the climbs. Not getting passed as much as I used to and overall pace is coming up, but this remains the weak area.
