Pre-race routine:

Just a bagel with peanut butter a little water and hit the road at 4:30am. Found only one person from my companies team once I got there.
Event warmup:

Just a little walking around and then lunge matrix. GU 15 mins before start.

  • 10 miles
  • 08m 04s  min/mile

Great Run! I set out at a better than expected pace and felt good. I starte at about and 8:20 pace and slowly built up over the whole race. Beside my half last week this is probably the best I have run in a loooonnnngg time. My nutrition and fluid intake was pretty much perfect. I had two GU's for the run. One at the start and then one at 45 mins. Water the whole way until the last water station I got some gatorade.
What would you do differently?:

I had more in the tank than I thought but I didn't want to burn out the last mile or two. I could have gotten below 1:20 but it is still a PR by 6 minutes so I can't complain
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around and got some grub and did a little light stretching. It was kind of a long walk about to gear check-out and where I parked so it was a pretty good cool down walk afterwards.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not much except just being familar with my what my body is telling me and perhaps being more familiar with the course would have helped.

Event comments:

The Army Ten Miler is a great race with great fan support the whole way. The festvities afterwards were good and the grub was too. I wish the signs would have been better for the trolleys that took you back to garment check-out. It made for a good cool down walk though. I will be sure to run this one again next year. Go Navy beat Army!!
