Total Time = 28m 59s
Overall Rank = 393/1047
Age Group = 50-54

Pre-race routine:

Got up, had 1/2 a harvest bar, did a little stretch. Bob and I left for the race ~6:00am. Inevitable bathroom runs at race site.
Event warmup:

Light jogging, light stretching.
  • 28m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 21s  min/mile

Still just happy to be able to jog the 5K without having to walk. Deliberately tried to keep HR <145 for mile 1, <150 for mile 2, <155 for mile 3, then whatever for the last 0.1 to the finish line. Everything worked out as planned.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

walking, light jogging, light stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of training, foot issues.

Event comments:

Very happy with how it turned out.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?

At 30 to 40 minutes into my run, my foot starts to go numb. If I keep going, the foot goes totally numb.
