Pre-race routine:

Bagel with peanut butter when I got up at about 5:30am. Met running mates at 6:00am for car pool to the location.
Event warmup:

Light stretching, little job in the park to loosen the legs.
  • 2h 10m 51s
  • 21.1 kms
  • 06m 12s  min/km

Had a great first half and then at about the 14-15k mark the Achilles started to become uncomfortable. So walked a little more and then at about 18k had to stretch it out a bit. Basically ran between water stations (every 3k) and then walked the water stations. Felt really good with a nice even pace.
What would you do differently?:

Clear the Achilles issue. If it hadn't been for that, could have been close to a PB time.

Good race with lots of support from volunteers, the police and the citizens of Oakville. Will do this again.
