Running Room
15C / 59F
Total Time = 40m 5s
Overall Rank = 1/20
Age Group = M
Age Group Rank = 1/15
Pre-race routine:

Salomon shorts, kinvara2 shoes, no hat this time. 2 eggos/toast/jerky for breakfast.

Event warmup:

1.5km jog to race start
  • 40m 5s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 01s  min/km

Haven't done much tempo/race work so these races are good motivation to push the pace. I'm 10-15 lbs over race weight so getting back into 38-39 mins isn't likely.

Post race
Warm down:

Sugar donut and coffee

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight and several turn arounds.

Event comments:

Good little charity race for mental illness, don't mind paying 40 bucks for a run even if it's not timed and totally measured wrong. :P

Pain shows us how strong we are. After last weekend I am convinced of this. After 151 training hours of swimming, biking, and running, I flew to Sonoma County, California for the race.
