San Ramon, California

40F / 4C

Overall Rank = 92/356

Event warmup:

Got to the race earlier than we needed to so I took about 30 minutes to just walk around with my son.

Jogged for about 10 minutes and stretched for another 10 minutes
  • 22m 46s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 19s  min/mile

I'm happy with my overall performance. My goal was to finish under 23:00. I would like to have finished a little stronger in the last quarter mile but I find it hard to really push when I am only racing for time.
What would you do differently?:

Start closer to the front - I looked up last years finishing times and tried to start far enough back that I would not be slowing others down. There was a lot of traffic in the first mile or so.

Warm down:

Walked aroung with my son - got a drink muffin and ice cream that he was more than happy to share

Event comments:

This was a good event. There was more than enough event staff and post race goodies and the 9:00am start and proximaty to my house makes it an easy event to get to.
