Pre-race routine:

Worked on my daughters new house all day nail down plywood and tearing out her bathroom.
Event warmup:

Tied my shoes and tried to turn on my foot pod. Dead battery so no pace info for this race
  • 21m 58s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 05s  min/mile

THis race/run started at 5pm. It was chip timed or anything so my time are based on my watch.

There were a bunch of folks in 70's type clothes as this was a Retro River Run to commemerate 30 years of the Jacksonville River Run (15K).

Since I didn't have my foot pod I just ran keeping an eye on my HR. It took little bit to get free of the crowds but after that I just ran my own pace.

Crossing the first bridge wasn't a big problem. I was surprise when I went by the first mile marker and my time was in the 7's.

The Acosta bridge was a pain and put the hurt on a lot of folks. I was feeling it too and my HR shows it. I tried to keep my head up and keep my pace steady. Running down the other side I just tried to keep from falling over.

I kept pace with a nice ponytail until the last half mile or so when I kicked it. I finished strong and kind of wished I had started my kick earlier but running down the backside of the acosta made that difficult.
What would you do differently?:

Check the battery in my foot pod earlier.
Post race
Warm down:

Talked to a guy who was wearing a HOT (Hammerhead Olympic Triathlon) hat then grabbed a couple free beers then went back to my daughters house to paint trim until 10pm.
