Pre-race routine:

Got up at 4:15. Half a bagel. Left house about 5:15. Hit deer on way to race!
Event warmup:

Tried to stay warm, it was 38 degrees!
  • 53m 42s
  • 5.3 miles
  • 10m 08s  min/mile

So I didn't sign up for the race because of my shoulder surgery and not being able to run. Then a spot opened up on the relay team for my charity, and I jumped on it! I am glad I did! I had a better "race" than I expected and was faster than I thought I would be. I am so happy that I went. The excitement of racing and the starting line energized me for what is to come hopefully!
What would you do differently?:

Not have surgery?
Post race
Warm down:

Wrapped up in my heat blanket and hiked back to the car!
