Pre-race routine:

Ken picked me up at 8:30 and we hit the race site at 9:05. Chipped up and got Mikes. Back to truck to then porta potty. Met Mike up on the line. Figure it was lets just have fun.
Event warmup:

THe first mile, OK the first 2.
  • 76m
  • 7.5 miles
  • 10m 08s  min/mile

First 2 miles the knee was talking some. I think the ginger steps I was taking flared some pain in my back. Took a little walk at 2 miles that every so often, At 2.5 Ken took off which was fine. Mike and I plodded along. Had a nice run on a 1/2 mile downhill grade. around mile 6 or so.

Took it home well and met Ken at the finish.

Walking back to the pavilion some boy girl was in the snow bank with a severe back ache. We were a little late to help her but as two girl had grabbed her and were helping her back to her car. She was walking a little better by the time she got to her car.

What would you do differently?:

Not kneel down any more. By the time we hit mile 4 the knee was starting to feel a little better. I know it was because the other leg was starting to hurts. This afternoon its been pretty painfree.

Good job on a cranky (old man's) knee.  Hard enough to run is the slush and snow with cooperative knees.
