Pre-race routine:

Nothing really as this was a fun race and used for training for NYC. Ran with Susana and Terry who flew in from Dallas
Event warmup:

  • 4h 20m 44s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 09m 57s  min/mile

Ran with Susana and kept even pace. Started cramping around Mile 18 or so and had to take electrolyte pills. Ran/Walked the last 10K
What would you do differently?:

Nothing except be more consistent with offseason running so it is not such a hard ramp up to do marathon training.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked to shuttle and took Metro

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not much training

Event comments:

This is a world class race with additional challenge of altitude. Entry fees are so cheap that it is tough for people to respect the race and people will register to run only 10K or even less! A lot of people join midway into the course to run a half or do a supported long run. Other than that, it is great with a nice Olympic stadium finish!
