Total Time = 58m 25s
Overall Rank = 38/1482

Pre-race routine:

Normal race breakfast, drove out to the parking garage and met up with Steve
Event warmup:

Jogged to the start area with Steve. Tried to stay warm waiting around.
  • 58m 25s
  • 15 kms
  • 03m 53s  min/km

Awesome, awesome run. Started fast but held back enough in case things got tough late and I had to fight to stay under 1 hour. As the miles went on I very carefully lower the pace. It's always fun reeling runners in while executing this strategy well. With less than a mile to go I kicked it into gear and hammered down the finishing hill, holding off someone that I could hear trying to surge past me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, I negative split each 5k which is just awesome.
Post race
Warm down:

Waited for the guys to finish, then jogged back to the car, then to the YMCA to get some food before heading home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Perhaps I over dressed if I really wanted to go for my absolute fastest potential race, but I don't mind getting a little warm late if it means I'm not totally freezing to death to start.

Event comments:

First time doing this historic race (crazy, I know), and I really enjoyed it. I would definitely do it again.
