Comments:

My hope coming into this was to try and go under 30:00. With the cold temps and gusty wind, that was probably a bit much to ask. I went for it anyway, hitting mile 2 right around 12:00, but then my pace slid back from there. Didn't want to totally fall apart so focused on making sure I kept the pressure on and got in under 31 minutes instead. Didn't have much of a kick at the end but feel like I finished strong.
What would you do differently?:

Not much, went for my goal time and when it wasn't going to happen I still managed to race strong.

Warm down:

Walked around, had some 3 bean chili (love the stuff they get for these races!)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Wind, cold air

Event comments:

Fun local race. Weather could've been worse but it was far from ideal.
