Overcast
Total Time = 33m 29s
Overall Rank = 17/242

Age Group Rank = 1/15
Pre-race routine:

Went to the company booth to help set up. We sponsor this event, as we have a significant presence in the genetics space. This is a terrific organization, and I'm happy, humbled and proud - all at once! - to be able to be part of it.
Event warmup:

Jogged around Camp Mabry with Kim, looking at the static displays. I'm a pilot, so jogging past the "birds" on display was almost too much!

Comments:

6:41 6:43 - I wrote this last year. Not sure where I was going with these numbers... Ran hard. Lotsa good sweating. Probably held back a little, as I had a tri the next morning.
What would you do differently?:

Run harder? Train more? Really, not much.
Post race
Warm down:

Went to the finish line shoot and cheered myself hoarse! Lots of happy faces out there (and Kim won her age group, too!).

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Same old, same old (like, being old, etc.). I think I held back a little, as I had a tri the next morning.

Event comments:

Great cause! Great race in an awesome setting! Cannot say enough good things about this one.

Better late... This is from last year, and this race is coming up again in a couple weeks.  Been away from racing for a while, I guess!

Oh, and I figured out what those numbers are in the run comment section (I think).  Splits for first 4k and second 4k.

Looking forward to sponsoring and participating in this great race for a great cause again in a couple weeks time!

Sorry!  I thought the (Manatee) time limit was a year before it was considered "late." 

I saw the race coming up again on the calendar and realized it had been almost a year since I shut it down to try to heal up a couple injuries and realized I had to get this one out before I ran it again!  Honestly not sure why I didn't publish it back then, except that maybe I shut down mentally, as well (which my kids would say is my native state...).
