Pre-race routine:

Half hour drive to race venue...had to park in overflow, but pretty close to the start. Hung out with my New Basin Blues Running Club xc team.
Event warmup:

Got in a solid 3/4 mile warmup run on the course, followed by some light stretching. A little tightness above right knee (something I've been monitoring for the last week), but otherwise felt good.
  • 33m 19s
  • 8 kms

Thought I might have gone out too fast (6:23), but I held strong throughout and set an 8K PR by about 1 minute.

Event comments:

Nice low-key cross country race on an interesting course that attracts a lot of fast entrants, due to being part of the USATF SoCal Cross Country Grand Prix Series.
