Event warmup:

This race was right off of the W&OD trail, so I rode my bike a short 15 miles to the race. I froze my *** off on the bike. I was not dressed for cycling.

Met my wife at the race and signed up. Did a couple of quick sprints.
  • 28m 36s

  • 09m 12s  min/mile

This race was just for fun. Ran with my wife and talked the whole time. It was fun running a race in the evening instead of the early morning.

The course was a giant figure eight. It was too narrow at a few points for the number of people running it. If you were there to try to win a turkey or a pie by placing in your AG, you had to start at the front of the pack.

Warm down:

Stretched, drank some gross red Gatorade. We were headed out to dinner, so I didn't eat much. But they had quite a spread of food! There was some really good looking soup they were serving.
