Pre-race routine:

Pretty close to the worst prep for a HM possible. This was the last day of 2 big weeks before going into a cutback week.
Also my girlfriends birthday party then night before, so a late night and a few beers/rums.
Morning of the race, left the house at 7, had a bacon and cheese roll, a chelsea bun and a powerade on the way to the race
Event warmup:

Walk from the car to the start...

Plan is warm up during the crowded start/slow patch.

Comments:

Started off too far back in the field. So the first 2km or so were quite slow weaving through traffic.
Did a walk break every 3km for the first 15km, and every 1.5km for kms 15-18. Ran the final 3km straight.
Faded a bit from about 3/4 the way through.
