This was the Canada Nationals, so the field was a bit more stacked than usual.
My previous best HM was 1:27:30 and that was during a run focus. This year is IM focus so no taper other than Thurs/Fri off. I did a 50km bike 4 hrs after this race and felt fine.
I have been on myfitnesspal for the last 3 months to get race weight down - I've just dipped below 150 lbs which is part of the speed increase.
I also ate a gel at the start and another at 40 mins. I never do that, yet it seemed to work well. I caught a lot of people in the last 5K with an almost dead even split.
What would you do differently?:
I missed New York qualifying by 8 seconds. I didn't even look up the standard cause I wasn't expecting to ever come close. So maybe next time!
Changed my shirt, hopped on the train then was back home before the kids were even done breakfast.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
Not run focused.
Lucky the weather was perfect, and the stampede grounds are the perfect start/finish line area.

This year the start was 6:30am. I was up at 5 to eat 700 cals - 2 pop tarts and a handful of Oreo minis. Breakfast of champions.
Also ate 4000 calories the day before. Obviously up a pound or so.
Ended up just wearing the under armor shirt and zoot ultra shorts - kinvara 4 shoes with wright socks. Too warm for the 2nd shirt.
