Comments:

What I expected and/or was hoping for. 2-3 one minute walk breaks, otherwise a nice steady run. No mile over 12:00mph. Hillier course than I expected but it was nice. 4 power chews over course of race.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing - keep training & pushing myself. I will get back to my old self.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around a bit. Water, bagel, banana. Watched end of awards (they started before I was in). Didn't win a door prize. :(

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Working my way back - I just need to keep at it.

Nice work out there today!

 I've wondered what that course is..sounds like a pretty area but yeah, it's a hilly one!  You are doing well getting back at it and will be kicking my tail soon enough.
