Total Time = 21m 54s
Overall Rank = 30/400

Age Group Rank = 1/9
Pre-race routine:

unusual time for a race so all usual stuff was off: got there, tried to maintain hydration, warm up etc
Event warmup:

a little bit of a jog/warm up with a few strides-untimed
  • 21m 54s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 04s  min/mile

glad Gary got me to do this last minute; super fun and challenging, of course, as all 5K's are-if you pace them well and leave it all out there
What would you do differently?:

not wear the vapor fly's; the cliftons would have been a better choice
Post race
Warm down:

tried to run a mile cool down, but my ankle hurt so we walked it in after a 1/4 mile

What limited your ability to perform faster:

tired legs from biking long on Sunday

Event comments:

This is an EXCELLENT race! Love the series. Can't believe it's been 9 years since I did this the last time but I've been focused on Triathlon. bBg fun and challenging but the bridge course is worse, for sure.
