Pre-race routine:

10 am race, some white toast with coffee not much else.
  • 43m 22s
  • 10.42 kms
  • 04m 10s  min/km

Santa run, so wore the Santa pants/top and hat and the beard as a scarf. Was cold enough that I wasn't too hot and didn't need a coat underneath.
What would you do differently?:

Fun run, middle of a "run every day" streak so legs are beat.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

December is a run every day streak thing so races are never great. Not too much ice this time.

Event comments:

Charity run in a provided Santa outfit made it a bit different. Next time I'll know how the belt works.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?

At 30 to 40 minutes into my run, my foot starts to go numb. If I keep going, the foot goes totally numb.
