Overall Rank = 734/891

Pre-race routine:

Left Nanticoke around 8:20. Found a parking spot and then walked over to pick up my packet.
Event warmup:

Nothing other than walking back and forth to the car a couple of times.
  • 1h 41m 19s
  • 9 miles
  • 11m 16s  min/mile

I think this is my 4th time running this, but I'm not nearly as fast as I used to be. My goal was to finish in 1:45 so I was pleased with my finish. I used a 4:00/1:00 run/walk interval but ran the whole first mile and walked a little extra on the hill.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - I was very pleased with this effort.

Warm down:

Nothing other than walking back to the car

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of run specific training.

Event comments:

This is a fun holiday event with great community support. There are lots of people out cheering with signs, kids to high five, music, beer, extra water, candy, etc. I was really glad I decided to run again.
