Pre-race routine:

Got up, had some coffee and a bite of the Cliff woke up, so we gave Damon his Father's day gift together and then I drove to Chicago :)
Event warmup:

Slow jog, probably around a mile.. squeezed in a 10 minute massage at the Athletico table..ahh, heaven!
  • 54m 48s
  • 4.97 miles
  • 11m 02s  min/mile

The run was great, but I wasn't. I couldn't keep my intended pace. Mile 1 was 9:56, then it started going downhill-mile 2-10:26, mile 3-11:20, mile 4-12smth, mile 5-10:23. I felt like i had no energy-i'm suspecting that a little family drama 2 days prior to that a little to do with that, and i just wasn't feeling my best the morning of the race. It was SO was around 90, but very humid, so felt much worse. In mile 4, I actually started getting chills, which i knew was not a good sign...even though I drank at every of the 4 water stations.

My HR stayed around 170-175 the whole race.

I ran 3:1 and reeeeeally looked forward to every walk break LOL yep, i was not in the race mood..
What would you do differently?:

Given the circumstances, not much, really.

Warm down:

walked around for a bit, then just drove home. A massage would have been great, but the line was too long.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not being 100%

Event comments:

Nice run, even if you were not in top form.
