Pre-race routine:

Race is only 10 minutes from home which is nice. Protein shake w/berries and cream 2 hours before.
Event warmup:

About a mile or so of walking and running.

  • 4.35 miles
  • 08m 40s  min/mile

Different course than last year. Last year was a straight out and back up the big hill, then down the other side and turn around and go back up and down. This year we started half a mile up the big hill and ran down it, got back to the start around mile 4, then turned around and ran back to the finish. So, although it was still kinda hilly with about 400 ft climbing, the whole thing ended up being net downhill. I hadn't run all week because my left foot was sore, but it felt OK for the race. I was lazy on the last big hill and didn't really push myself up it.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder up the last big hill.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked and chatted and had a nice cup of chicken soup.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I'm slow and don't train enough. Wasn't real tough mentally.

Event comments:

It's always fun to run in a nice local race. Last race for 2006 which is a little sad, but the 5K Winter Series will be here soon enough.
