Overall Rank = 26/1539

Pre-race routine:

Finally healthy after nursing leg and back injuries since the end of December. Decided to do the 15K Challenge at Great Race of Agoura Hills (10K then 5K, about 45 mins apart) as both a race opportunity and a long run for Boston training. I've done both of the two half marathons and the 10K before, but never got around to the 5K, so the 15K combo would knock that out, too.

Got up at 5am, headed out to the race site around 6...parked...switched to a long sleeve shirt (temps were sitting around 49-50 on arrival)...jogged 0.4 miles from car to portapotty near start line.
Event warmup:

Jog from car.

Comments:

Went pretty hard throughout. Had some tightness in right upper leg I kept an eye on, but all my chronic and recent injuries behaved themselves. Even with big hills in miles 4 & 5, I managed what I think was my 3rd fastest 10K.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...good race. Tried not to pace to "save myself' for the 5K to follow. Figured I'd let that race determine its own pace.
Post race
Warm down:

Dropped medal (and cold-weather gloves) off at a booth two friends worked at, had some water, then jogged up to the same portapotty I started the day at, adjacent to the shared 10K/5K starting line.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just the terrain.

Event comments:

The Great Race of Agoura Hills is a multi-race event with two half marathons (one was cancelled due to flash flood damage on the trail course), 10K, 5K, two family 1 mile runs. Big expo, pancake breakfast, challenging courses. Top drawer event.
