Pre-race routine:

Got up at 6:00am, had a coffee and got dressed. Packed 1gel and 1 water as I was going only for a 10k run and to check out the scene for 10mile run...
Event warmup:

Ran 2.5k to the start of the race.
  • 1h 40m
  • 10 miles
  • 10m  min/mile

I paced myself - tried not to go over 152HR all the time. This preserved me for the distance and only around mile 8 I started getting tired, but it was managable - did not walk at all.
Took the gel after 1hr, drand all my water gradually - good idea, and Gatorade at the stations.
What would you do differently?:

More gells, probably another 2.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk home 2.5 km.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough training for this kind of distance and lack of motivation.

Event comments:

Will do it again, like to run with a lot of people, the distance is a challenge and it is managable.

152 all the way, more less- great practice.
Course: Flat, no hills, on the street and on paved bike path along the lake. Next to the paved path was a gravel strip on which you could run - good idea.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right

5500 runners that definitely is a lot of company. I don't think there are that many runners in all of North Dakota.
