Total Time = 1h 53m 29s
Overall Rank = 619/9768
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 86/677
Pre-race routine:

Got up about 4:30 and ate some peanut butter toast and drank a vitamin water and a bottle of water. Met my firend downstairs and we headed over to our corral.
Event warmup:

  • 1h 53m 29s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 40s  min/mile

Pretty good for my first long endurance event. To this point, I've only done sprint Tri's and 5K's. 1:45 was my stretch goal, with a sub 2:00 run being my realistic goal. I came in right between them.

Even though I run in Phoenix, this was damn hot.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I probably need to work on my pace on my longer runs, rather than just doing the distance.

Warm down:

Walking, stretching...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The heat

Event comments:
