Pre-race routine:

Got up got dressed and ate a PB&J and water and headed to ABQKid's house.
Event warmup:

Had an energy drink. Walked to the porta-potty and walked to the start line.
  • 1h 44m 30s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 59s  min/mile

First few miles, my stomach felt nauseous and I was thinking that I shouldn't have had that energy drink. Once my stomach settled down I just got in a rhythm and kept the same pace the whole time. It was kind of strange, as there was a gap where I was running, people about 50 yards ahead and people about 50 yards behind so I ran by myself until the end.
What would you do differently?:

Wouldn't have had the energy drink. Other than that, it went really good. I bettered my last years time by 3 1/2 minutes and set a new PB.
