55F / 13C
Total Time = 22m 26s
Overall Rank = 54/725
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 1/28
Pre-race routine:

Worked 12 hour night shift before race. got off at 7:30 am and went home. Had to wait until 11am for race start. I did not want to take a nap. I figured once I hit the pillow it would be over.
Event warmup:

Did a few pick ups
  • 22m 26s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 14s  min/mile

It was a very nice warm day but extremely windy. 20-30mph gusts off the bay. 20 mph sustained winds. I felt defeated as I was checking my pace. I felt like there was always a head wind after the first mile. I crossed the finish line disappointed and exhausted from no sleep. I guess the rest of the field struggled also. I could not believe I won my age group.
What would you do differently?:

Sleep, drop some holiday weight. I am about 15 lbs heavy from August after IMLP.
Post race
Warm down:

Waited for wife. She also won her AG

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

3rd time I did this race. Always fun. Lots of activities but they never announce the AG winners. Very Strange. Just stand in line and pick up your medal. Will be back next year.

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.
