Pre-race routine:

Got to the event with plenty of time, walked around and checked out the vendor tents. Good turnout for an inaugural event.
Event warmup:

Nothing. Just sat on the lawn and waited for the final countdown announcements.

Comments:

At 7mins/mile average for the whole race I must have slowed down to about 7:30/mile for the last 2 miles. Not a good baseline but I guess I have to start somewhere. I should be cruising at around 6-6:20/mile.
What would you do differently?:

I think I could have pushed it smidge harder and not died. It was still a good measure with the temperatures and the course being a good baseline.
Post race
Warm down:

None. Banana and water after the race. HR normalized pretty quick.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just the extra 8-10 pounds I'm carrying and the lack of consistent training. I have been doing a lot better so I think I can get pretty close to old form in a couple of months.

Event comments:

Placed again so I'm 2 for 2 so far this year in Florida. I have to take some solace in that considering my training is about a year and a half in the hole. It's good to still be competitive in my age group. Lots of people at this race and everyone was out to have a good time. I hope I contributed to the overall positive attitude out there today.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
