50F / 10C
Total Time = 7h 02m 6s
Overall Rank = 80/162
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 5/11
Event warmup:

Stayed warm in the car.
  • 7h 02m 6s
  • 31.07 miles
  • 13m 35s  min/mile

Had a really rough time from miles 8 to 18. Fell four times total and hit my head once. Definitely not my day. Felt a little better through the rough sections and finished strong, even in the cold rain. Got my buckle!!

What would you do differently?:

Try eating before the race.
Post race
Warm down:

Cold and rainy. Skipped post race festivities for the warmth of the car.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not sure, possibly nutrition. I need to try eating before the run and hope that it doesn't trigger stomach issues.

Event comments:

The only complaint is that the aid stations were a bit far apart. The first two are a little over 5 miles, and the last one is 6 from the finish. At least one more in that finish stretch would have been nice.
