Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 139/194
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5am and had peanut butter toast and oatmeal for breakfast. Arrived about an hour before the start.
Event warmup:

Just walked around a little bit and stretched.
  • 2h 09m 46s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 55s  min/mile
What would you do differently?:

Probably go out faster. I think I was overly conservative at the beginning because I was afraid of bonking at the end. Shooting for under 2 hours next time! I had a long sleeve t-shirt on and a sweatshirt over that. I was planning on ditching the sweatshirt before the start but it was just too cold.
Post race
Warm down:

Mostly wandered around looking for my wife since we didn't set a meeting spot. Lesson learned for next time!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just conditioning. It was a perfect day weather wise and I didn't have any injuries.
