Comments:

Lost 10 lbs in the last 3 months - about 3-4 lbs lighter than last year. Felt a lot easier though. Also did 90k bike the day before, and ran another 11km this afternoon. No days off afterwards.

Warm down:

No cash prizes anymore so just watched the live band and chatted with some other runners including the winner.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

No taper, training for IM not 10ks. Not in ideal digestive condition either. :P



Event comments:

A good yearly race to gauge training progress.

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.
