It was a tough race for sure. I've done this a few times before, and this is my best time yet. I feel pretty good about it since I ran 10 miles on Saturday and biked 40 miles yesterday. I could definitely feel those. I wanted to practice trying to get my heart rate down, but I probably would have had to walk the hills to do it, which I didn't want to do.
What would you do differently?:

If I really wanted to improve my times I would drop a few pounds and taper. But this is more or less a fun run if I'm in town. It's too tough to really enjoy focusing on.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and drank some juice.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably not enough rest coming into it.

Event comments:

They really do a good job putting on this race. Publix has a good spread, and with the finish at Whitewater you can always go to the park.
