Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 6am and took a shower. Ate a piece of toast while I helped the wife get some songs on her iPod (she had some issues). Totally forgot to grab my watch. Luckily, they called out split times at the mile markers.
Event warmup:

Some stretching. Caravaned with some friends from the hood so we stood around talking.

Comments:

Grabbed some water at the first water station. Don't know why as I normally don't drink during my runs. I think this upset my stomach a little. I went out really good at the first mile. I think my split was 8:30. Around second mile, I was at 17:00. Still under a 9 min pace. Starting after the second mile, I slowed a bit and was slowly getting passed. At the 3rd mile marker, I had lost some ground and rolled in just past 27:00. From there, it was right at a 9:00 pace with mile 4 at 36:00, mile 5 at 45:00. I tried to push as hard as I could but had little left in the tank at that point as I slipped a little further back. Mile 6 was at 55:00 and the finish was 56:51
What would you do differently?:

Right around mile 2 I was wishing I had started training earlier than late Dec. Overall I feel really good only having trained 10 weeks from 0 running miles.
Post race
Warm down:

Water, cookies, banana.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Event comments:

I really want to run this race next year to use it as a gauge.

Good job on the race. That's an impressive race time for someone with a "lack of training". I hope you continue to see improvements with your running.
