Pre-race routine:

Woke up drove down to National City.... I had to be there early since I was driving the pace car that I supplied from my work a 2007 Mustang GT convertible......
Event warmup:

Got there about 6:30 AM got the car ready for them..... did a little stretching and took a short little jog..... Ran into a boxing training of a guy that I used to spar with back when I was fighting.... talked to him for awhile..... I could tell it had been awile since my last race since I grabbed nothing from the house to eat or drink.... nor did I bring my ipod or watch and heart rate monitor with me I'm surprised I remembered to get dressed...
  • 27m 33s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 52s  min/mile

I ran ok considering the amount of training that I did.... Knee was a little sore on the couple of downhills.... but beside that and not knowing at all how I was doing time wise I felt I did ok a little slow but ok...
What would you do differently?:

EAT, DRINK, TRAIN, Maybe having my watch would have helped me since not once did I know how much time had gone by nor my pace.... if I had that I would have been at least 2 min faster..... I left some in the tank... but had fun..
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed my clothes out of the trunk of the Mustang and walked about a mile to work.... Since they needed to use the car for the 1 mile race.... You wanna talk about fast those guys can smoke.... I think the winner went sub 4 mins

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not having my heart rate monitor and watch.... Not eating before the race...

Event comments:

They did a great job considering it was there 1st year...
