Trying to stay warm. Starbucks Green tea + hiding in the car.
  • 31m

Felt I kept a pretty steady pace. Never felt overly tired or sore throughout. Lots of wind, snow, and very cold temps.

Only goal for this race was to finish without stopping/walking which I did so I am happy.
What would you do differently?:

Dressed down a little more. Could have down with lighter gloves.

Wish I had a faster 2nd lap.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Experience with hills/resistance. Overall stamina at faster speeds.

Event comments:

Very pleased with Runner's choice. Very well organized race. Lots of help from Police with shutting down streets and directing traffic. The competition was a little advanced for the average runner. Lots of very skilled runners there. A few top Boston marathon runners, and people out there to win. Still had fun and was a great first race and intro to racing. Looking forward to the next event.
