Huntersville, North Carolina
United States
35F / 2C
Total Time = 2h 02m 47s
Overall Rank = /318
Age Group = 50-60
Age Group Rank = 12/19
Pre-race routine:

Banana and peanut butter. Ran out of INFINIT Nutrition. Took along one Clif bar and that served me well for the race.
  • 2h 02m 47s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 22s  min/mile

Felt good the entire race, went out a little too fast and maybe slow down a bit at the beginning. This was the first road race I've been in in over 12 years. Forgot how much fun it is just to run.
What would you do differently?:

I'd wear my running tights next time. They were in the laundry and I just wore my regular running pants. Temp was around 35 degrees and I would still keep the laying I used. Which was an Under Armor t-shirt, the Huntersville Long Sleeve shirt, my biking jacket with my H-CTC uniform on top.
Post race
Warm down:

Was able to work in some ART work for 15 minutes. Met Dr. Sipetrate, who is highly recommended, but too far out for most of our club members.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

In January, I will most likely take a steady supplement of Optygen HP. I ran out last month and firmly believe in its benefits.
Also, I will have to get out there and do speed work. Now that I have the mechanics worked out (plantar fasciitis, bursa, etc.) I feel I can get back to where I use to be long ago or at least try.

Event comments:

For it's first annual event and the organizers did outstanding. I expect at least double what was out there this past Saturday. Not an easy course, but just enough of a challenge to make it fun.
