Total Time = 3h 50m 11s
Overall Rank = 481/2373
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 35/178
Pre-race routine:

ate my oatmeal, walked 1.25 miles to the start, trying to get warm
Event warmup:

none other than walking from the hotel, got in the corral 5 min before the start
  • 3h 50m 11s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 08m 47s  min/mile

Run went well. I had no idea how I'd do, as I hadn't run more than 14 miles on the road since IM in Sept, and that wasn't a run! Really just wanted to stay below 4:00. I ran a very even pace till the last 5 miles, surprisingly so. Felt bad by mile 8, but never worsened till mile 21. Weather was miserable, in the low 20s with frigid gusts of wind. When the wind died down, it was OK. I had worn a fleece to throw away after the start, but never warmed up enough to take it off!. Overall, I was pretty pleased.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

stood around a bit, found Ed and Vespar, had a beer and hit the subway back to the hotel

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of training

Event comments:

Good race, everything. went smoothy, except the post race beer lines. That was a huge pain in the ass.
