Leesport, Pennsylvania

Pagoda Pacers & Pretzel City Sports
39F / 4C
Total Time = 56m 50s
Overall Rank = 482/629
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 28/51
Pre-race routine:

Got there very early, brought Kaye (racer) and her hubby (spectator) with us. Got our sweatshirts (swag) and bib numbers, then sat in the car for a bit. Eventually I at a Stinger bar and sipped on some Nuun.
Event warmup:

Short little run plus some dynamic stretches.
  • 56m 50s
  • 5 miles
  • 11m 22s  min/mile

Eh, the run went the opposite direction as last year and I shaved off right around 2 minutes. I think I liked last year's direction better.

No snow/ice this year, just mud.

The best part is running on the canal towpath by the old canal bed and locks and by the creek, scenery-wise.
What would you do differently?:

Not be a cow. Seriously, I gained 10 lbs. since Oct. Not good.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked to the car to get warm/dry clothes, then went back for post-race food, awards, hanging out with friends, etc.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

See "What would you do differently?"

Event comments:

Good race overall, Pretzel City Sports does a great job with timing, etc.
