east carolina road race
40F / 4C
Total Time = 44m 39s
Overall Rank = 9/54
Age Group = 30-39
Age Group Rank = 3/6
Pre-race routine:

had not registered, so I got up and had my coffee while I decided if I was going to go race or not. Finally decided to race despite the temperature
Event warmup:

ran a couple of miles, stretched, then ran another mile trying to get the body warm. Ended up running in tights with two shirts. that may have been a little much, but I don't think it effected the outcome
  • 44m 39s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 11s  min/mile

never really felt into the race. don't know what it was, a little physical, a little mental. over a 1:30 slower than two weeks ago on a much hillier course. maybe it was just the cold weather.
What would you do differently?:

maybe run in shorts and not tights, take one of the shirts off.
Post race
Warm down:

stretched out, walked some, ate a bagel and a bannanna

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not sure. maybe the cold, maybe just tired

Event comments:

this is a fun race, and until recently, one of, if not the only one, that was longer than a 5k. The ECU baseball team volunteers at the aid stations and they have their jerseys on so that is neat.

in looking at the official results, just realized that the second place person in our age group is actually 57 yrs old, not 37. Being a small area, we all tend to know each other. I guess that means in my age group I am 2 out of 5. Not much difference. I really care more about the time that the places. You can tell from the results of this race and the one two weeks ago, that this one was not as competetive a field. I am more happy with my race two weeks ago than this one because I was under 7 minutes per mile then, even though I did not place in my age group. After looking at last year's race, I actually was slower this year than last. someone who is a lot smarter/wiser than me will have to tell me what all that means, if anything.
