Pre-race routine:

6AM wake up call. Usual am coffee w/pop tart just to hold me over. Electricity had gone out, glad I was able to get up w/o alarm clock. Didn't get to sleep much, but managed. Woke up my little one and out the door. Had been to packet pickup earlier in the week, so didn't have to fight the crowds. Found xc team and stretched away from the rain. Saw the 15kers off then we went 15 min later.
Event warmup:

Not much due to rain, trying to stay dry. Stretching.
  • 21m 7s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 47s  min/mile

Started out comfortable, then settled in to a pace. Was aiming for 7, surprisingly, ended up 6:45. Middle mile had to work to maintain. After the split, realized why I was feeling it some. By now, we were pretty scattered and had to really focus to keep pace. Early comfortable pace allowed me to pick others off that started too fast. All right finish. Wish it could have been at 6:45 but didn't fall off too much. There was no heat, just steady drizzle/rain. Rain felt good throughout.
What would you do differently?:

Find steady group aiming for 6:45....However, not worrying about a pace was relaxing as I was just running on how I felt.
Post race
Warm down:

Turn-around at finish the bring in the xc team 5kers, then on to pick up the 15kers. Total run was about a 7miler.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

This was aobut the best I could have done.

Event comments:

The race started out fine....However, once the results came up, was pretty much chaos. Too many corrections and people left off of results....We still do not know our 15kers finish times. Waited and waited before we decided to go for breakfast and come back... Too late, the trophies were there, but no results posted...hmmmm.

It rains? In Texas?    Congrats on the race.  What a pace!  Hope the rest of the team has their results by now.  How'd your "little one" do?
