Mt Juliet, Tennessee
United States
Team Magic
37F / 3C
Total Time = 31m 4s
Overall Rank = 69/177
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 3/3
Pre-race routine:

Got to the middle school about 20 minutes early to scope things out, hung out in cafeteria a bit to stay warm until time to head out to start line
Event warmup:

Just light stretching
  • 31m 4s
  • 3.2 miles
  • 09m 43s  min/mile

My goal was to beat 10min/mile pace as I just started training about a month ago. I went out faster than I would have liked, but knew I would because of the spectators lining the roads in anticipation of the parade. First mile was 8:37. Settled in a bit once I got into the neighborhood. Struggled a little with the hills in the middle of race but overall was happy with the day.
What would you do differently?:

Run outside more for training
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around a bit before heading back into cafeteria for some food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Limited amount of training leading up to race.

Event comments:

Overall the race was good. I could have done a little better but was excited to get out and give myself a benchmark leading into a couple sprint tri's next year. Team Magic did a great job with setup and tons of volunteers to help.
