Pre-race routine:

Typical breakfast, got packets and waited in the car due to rain.
Event warmup:

Slight jog to the start line from the bathroom.

Did not race this at all, just ran with the guys. First we lost Steve, then Bart fell off the pace. Clay yo-yo'd a bit but most ran the second half just the two of us. Had a ton of fun in the rain and not worrying about my time.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, two weeks after the marathon was just looking to have fun

Warm down:
