Pre-race routine:

Got up and drove to Tampa. Got a parking spot and walked to the expo to sit. Found a chair and ate my PBJ. Went outside a bit before 9 and got in my 9:15 corral.
Event warmup:

nada, although there were 2 kids maybe 8 years old with their coach who were inside warming up for roughly 45 minutes before the race............REALLY? They are probably twice as fast as I am.

Comments:

This was kind of a day to go run and not be on my own. I had no expectations of a PR I just wanted to not do horribly. Ran on a 4:1 for the most part. I ran all of the first mile and that was a sub 12 minute mile. Knee behaved well, feet were sore. My orthotics have been making my PF flare so I bought some different ones for the race. Probably not the best idea I ever had but not sure the orthotics would be any better,
What would you do differently?:

Wear less clothes. I had long tights a long sleeved top and a wind breaker. It was in the 40s, VERY cold for here, when I left the house. I Tied the windbreaker around my waist for the race. Glad I had it afterwards as I was chilled.
Post race
Warm down:

I probably walked a good 1.5 miles afterwards to find everything. The post race activities were moved very far away. I didn't bother walking over and went back to my car and went home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

S/P knee surgery, have only been running a month and gingerly at that

Event comments:

Gasparilla is always a great race!!

In November of 2000, I noticed that I was losing the feeling in my toes. The sensation traveled up my body and within a week, I was nearly 80% paralyzed.

First, with your upcoming 5K, I strongly advise you to check out the “Couch to 5K” training schedule. This training schedule is a GREAT way to get back into running safely and wisely.
