Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

jogged for about 5 minutes

  • 5.35 miles
  • 07m 57s  min/mile

I wasnt planning on doing anything special. I wanted to keep it easy/even until the last two miles. The last two miles are tough due to the largest stair ascents. I think I went a little too easy but I wasnt in a rush, just happy to be out and enjoying the day. Didnt twist an ankle or fall and beat my time from last year.
What would you do differently?:

Try harder , you know you arent really racing when you are looking around at the trees.

Warm down:

picked up my FABULOUS pink second place ribbon.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not a whole lot of training, not a whole lot of racing desire - just kinda glad to be staying even with exercise right now

Event comments:

great local race at a great local park with a great running club
