Pre-race routine:

left work, drove 5 minutes, changed into running clothes, waited for marcy
Event warmup:

  • 29m 20s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 26s  min/mile

I had a great run. I have ramped my running up as my ankle allows it and with this run, its my best distance month since 2008 when my chronic ankle issues cut my running to a minimum. I had been hoping to break 30 minutes by my November race but I did it today. The oool temps were definitely a plus, but I am pretty pleased with myself.

Only issue was thats parts of the course were poorly lighted. With my ankle, thats dangerous. But overall a good course.

Event comments:

first time event on a week night, so i guess the crowd was decent. No food or beer but pretty quick on the results for a manually timed race. I hope they continue and build a costume contest around it.
