Pre-race routine:

Started waking up at 5:30. Up at 6. Coffee, banana and 1 slice PB bread. Some gatorade on the way to the event site.
Event warmup:

Stretch, jog a couple small circles
  • 51m 5s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 14s  min/mile

I'm thrilled with my time. I hoped to break an hour and would like to have broken 55mins. Smoked both of those. Felt really good for most of the run except the last .21 miles. I hit the 6 mile sign and wasn't sure that I was going to make it in running. The last 3/4 mile was up a long gradual climb. There was also a bitch of a hill around mile 4 that took its toll.
What would you do differently?:

Warm down:

Walked around a bit to cool down. Got some Gatorade, fruit and bagels. Met up with Craig and Eric. They both did really well too. Missed Joscon though, saw on the boards that he was out there somewhere.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Great race. Maybe next year I'll be able to do the half mary.
