Pre-race routine:

Stretched at home, worked on great toe joint to get it stretched as well.

  • 29m 34s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 32s  min/mile

Just beginning to run again as of last week. Only doing .25 mile or slightly more. All I wanted to do was finish the race. I was excited that not only did I finish it, I did it without having to stop and walk.
What would you do differently?:

Probably not have signed up. As of now my foot is not bad, but there's no way of knowing if I did something stupid!
Post race
Warm down:

Walked, rehydrated

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight, foot problems, life

Event comments:

Very slow with awards. Also, the race started 2 minutes early (believe it or not!) and I know a few people who werent at the start line when it began.
