Fast Friends 4.5 Mile Road Race - Run

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
West Swanzey, New Hampshire
United States
Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue Education and Adoption Center
26F / -3C
Total Time = 40m 36s
Overall Rank = 39/81
Age Group = 30-39
Age Group Rank = 3/6
Pre-race routine:

Visited the potty, pinned my number on, stayed inside the building before the race to stay warm. No warm-up.
Event warmup:

None. Should really start doing this.
  • 40m 36s
  • 4.5 miles
  • 09m 01s  min/mile

Pushed it on the hills, felt nauseated a couple times. Otherwise good pace, not painful. A little difficult breathing in cold air and didn't warm up until about mile 3.
What would you do differently?:

Should start doing a warm-up run so I'm ready to run harder. Proud of my time! Beat last year's time and finished 3rd in my AG. Small field - I really didn't expect to do well.
Post race
Warm down:

Walking around, staying warm in the rescue center.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The cold air was hard to breathe, and I started off cold when I could have warmed up first. Had a light breakfast, felt good to be light in the morning.

Event comments:

Love this race. Local, 100% of proceeds goes towards greyhound rescue, and there were great prizes donated by local businesses. I won a $25 gift certificate to the local running store. Great volunteers, lots of dogs and families, fun atmosphere and great run.
