The Louisville Triple Crown of RunningTM
32F / 0C
Total Time = 48m 40s
Overall Rank = 671/6276
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 93/363
Pre-race routine:

Waffles, OJ and milk/protein shake.
Event warmup:

Met Bruce Nord at the downtown YMCA at 8am then walked to the race start. Got there as the national anthem was being sung at 8:25 for 8:30 start.
  • 48m 40s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 50s  min/mile

started the race with bruce. started 1:30" back in the crowd before crossing the mat after the gun went off. we were right at 9:30" clock time / 8:05" at the first mile, Bruce said he fealt strong, so we ran together to the 5k point going around the cemetary park. i lost bruce after that and just ran steady to keep at the 8" / mile pace. they had timers at every mile marker which was nice.
What would you do differently?:

i jogged a 6 mile trail run four days prior just to make sure i would be able to keep a pace around 8" / mile. that's the first time i've run that distance in over 6 months. since Oct '06, my only running has been race to race in the 5k range. need to get back on a steady 2X run per week..... a day for sprints / fartleks and a day of LSD.
Post race
Warm down:

waited for bruce at the finish line. grabbed a panina bread and gatorade, walked a mile back to the YMCA and back home by 10am.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of any steady run training program since moving from hawaii 5 months ago. wah, wah :(
