Pre-race routine:

2 hour drive with big brother Stan to race start. A serving of Perpetuem and a gel shot for breakfast.

Weighed in at 210 today.
Event warmup:

Ran 1/2 mile and stretched.
  • 1h 29m 47s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 06m 51s  min/mile

Got in a group of about 8 guys and rolled with it. Hit the turnaround at 43:16 and new I was probably going too fast....
Ran well until the last 5K and hit a wall... Ran the last 5k in the 7 1/2 min/mile range.
Really thought I'd bomb out sooner with little run training in the last 3 months.
Very happy with a new PR. This course is flat & fast and good for PR's.
Did the same race 5 years ago and bettered my time by 7 minutes today. Getting older and getting faster!! I'll take it. :)
What would you do differently?:

Warm down:

Absolutely drained when I finished, had to find a chair and sit down before I fell down.
Had a Hammer recovery bar, bananas and some Hammer Recoverite.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Good early season race to get the juices flowing. Finished one spot off the podium.....dang it! ;)
