Overall Rank = 351/509
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 68/91
Pre-race routine:

Got up around 5:30 thank god for end of daylight savings time
had Bagel with peanut butter and half bottle of gatorade on the way
  • 2h 15m 52s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 10m 22s  min/mile

Wanted to keep zone 2 for first 3 miles and bump it up a zone each 3 miles after. couldn't keep hr down in beginning so went more by RPE. Ran first 3 at 10:53 pace second 3 miles at 10:23 pace the next 4 at 10:04 pace. Once I hit the 10 mile mark I wanted to leave everything I had out on the course. Had been playing leapfrog with one girl just before I hit mile ten and surprised her when I picked up the pace to a sub 10 min mile :) I thought the course ended on a school track so once I hit it I started my final kick but it was too soon :( 3/4 around the track we cut off the side for the last .1 mile
What would you do differently?:

Start my final kick a little later
not get caught behind people going for water at the aid stations

Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

My weight
starting my final kick too soon

Event comments:
