Pre-race routine:

I picked up Y and Dud and drove up to the race site. Waited for Mike and Madi.
Event warmup:

Quick trip into college to use facilities.
  • 23m 59s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 43s  min/mile

Waited for the start with Dud, Y, Cheri, Mike and Madi. Wasn't really paying attention with the race started. Started in the middle of the pack, creeped up through over first mile. Settled into a nice pace and just kept moving along. About a mile and a half in the sun came out and it warmed a bit, but was fine taking the hat and gloves off. Finished strong. I was especially pleased with the consistancy of the pace. 2nd and 3rd mile were both 7:23 pace.
What would you do differently?:

This course could easily be a PR course with a better starting position and coming into it maybe training for a Dec or Jan marathone or 5k specific instead of coming off the late fall recovery.

Warm down:

Put on some warmer clothes and waited for the rest of the crew to come in. Then we all headed out for breakfast. Thanks Dud and Y!! All in all a very good morning!

Event comments:

Course was good and it started on time. We didn't hang around for post race activities so can't speak for that.
