Pre-race routine:

I don't warm up. Took 2 potty breaks and ate some honey.

I know you get to rest going downhill but that 1.5 mile uphill was the devil.
What would you do differently?:

Not a thing. I ran this race the best I have ever run.
Post race
Warm down:

Ate a lot of chili at the Best Dam Chili cookoff.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I had planned on using this race as my long run training for a 1/2 mary coming up in March. I got caught up in the moment and ran the best I have ever run.

Event comments:

This run has me rethinking my 1:45:00 1/2 mary goal. Maybe can get under 1:40:00. We'll see!!!!
