Pre-race routine:

Part of a Powerbar, and a Roctane GU about 20 mins pre-race.
Event warmup:

Stretched while standing in Whole Foods a bit, and then ran out past Hamline (to check on the part under the bridge) and back. Calling that 1.2 miles. Then jogged 2 times to bridge and back from start line to stay warm. Calling that 0.3 miles.

Into the wind for the first half, and then HOTTER coming back with the wind. Shows in my splits. Didn't expect 2:59 to be that slow - was hashed coming up that hill from Lexington, and then maybe took it too easy under Hamline. Turned my left ankle a bit (on the outside) at the top of the hill 0.3 miles into the race!
What would you do differently?:

Not much. Could MAYBE have been a bit faster in mile 2.
Post race
Warm down:

Just 0.4 back to car as my left ankle was starting to get sore and throb a bit.

Event comments:

Hard fast USATF race!
