Pre-race routine:

Woke up early, had my normal early race-morning breakfast of a couple of pieces of toast and a Mountain Dew. Got a shower and dressed, then headed out the door to drive to the race. Picked up Lisa (twolives) on the way.
Event warmup:

None. Sat around and chatted with Lisa and a few other friends. Met Jay (jccbulldog) right before the start.

Didn't have any expectations for this race. Went into it more with this was a training run, not a race. Definitely haven't done enough in the last couple of months post-IMAZ to be prepared to race. Started slow and slowly picked up the pace through each mile....mainly because I needed to hit the porta-potty.
What would you do differently?:

Warm down:

Finished, headed straight for the porta-potty, then came back for some Gatorade and some water. Met Jay and Lisa and chatted with others while trying to cool down.

Event comments:

This is just a runner's club series race so there weren't any timing chips, t-shirts, etc. But very well organized event. Not bad to get a year's renewal to the club and 10 races for $65. Can't expect much more. This will be great to use for my Marine Corps & St. Jude Marathon training.
