65F / 18C
Total Time = 3h 33m 52s
Overall Rank = 24/70
Age Group = 40-49
Age Group Rank = 6/14
Pre-race routine:

ate my oatmeal, drove 30 min to the race
Event warmup:

  • 3h 33m 52s
  • 16.7 miles
  • 12m 49s  min/mile

I was using this as a long run, not a race. Jbob, Allen and I ran the first 5 miles together, then Allen dropped back. I stayed with Jonathan til mile 11.5. He was struggling then and I was feeling pretty good, so I took off then. i ran the last few miles comfortably hard, but never pushed too much. By 14, I could tell that I hadn't drunk enough fluids.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more
Post race
Warm down:

none. Waited 20 min for jonathan to come in. Drank a couple of beers waiting and stretched the legs

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Great small, remote race. It's morslty on private land with limited access, so there were only 3 aid stations on the 25K. Those stations were well stocked though. Very hilly course, much more so than I expected. Great long run, it would have been very hard to race it. I'll do it again, though.
