Pre-race routine:

Easy and simple. I set the alarm for 90 minutes before the gun, had a coffee and PB and honey and fretted (as usual) about how warm to dress for the high 40's. I was out the door 25 minutes before the gun in a long sleeve shirt and light gloves. (The gloves turned out to be too much so I took them off just before the race).
Event warmup:

An easy 1 1/4 mile trot to the start to chat with friends.
  • 21m 7s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 49s  min/mile

I tried for my treadmill pace and it helped. This wasn't as fast as I could be if I'd planned for it, but a PB by quite a bit.

Here are the results
