Pre-race routine:

Got up early had a bagel and some coffee and then drove down to get registered.
Event warmup:

Got to the race early and went to get registered and then back to the car to stay warm for a while. As it got closer to the start time I walked around a little and took a very short jog.
The start of the race was delayed by 30 minutes.
  • 22m 44s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 20s  min/mile

There was a 1/2 marathon and a 5K going on, they let the 1/2 start and then about 5 minutes later we went. The turn around for the 5K was not marked well and I spoke with the overall winner after the race and he got the win because the guy in front of him missed the turn by a good little bit. I ended up running maybe 10-15 yards past it.
What would you do differently?:

Warm down:

Went inside got some water and doughnuts and waited for the awards. I got 1st in my age group which was nice. The awards where nice blankets.

Great race! I wish I had known you were there. I probably saw you finish. I was supposed to run the half, but bronchitis kept me on the sidelines cheering instead.
