Great race, one of my best (well, yeah, it's a PR, duh). But I mean, I actually felt good at the top of the hill at the halfway mark. My legs didn't respond the way I wanted for the third quarter, but I definitely had more left in the tank.
What would you do differently?:

Hamstring injury kept me from doing any speed work for two months, so I guess -- do more speed work, but also, don't injure my hamstring...
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Hamstring injury. Bleh.

Event comments:

Great race, fun to run and then watch the other age groups (and the pros!) after.

Soon after I got married, I decided I needed to get motivated to work out and focus on getting back into shape. I could barely jog a quarter-mile without needing a walk break.

I think quite truly for the first time I 'get it'. It's not just about the fitness. It's not just about the great little endorphin rush as you hit 5, 10, 15 miles...its not just the medal at the end.
