Event warmup:

Stretched, then HAD to go find a Port a Potty, then somewhere to wash my damn hands.
  • 24m 37s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

I was running well until the halfway point. At the halfway point I started feeling lousy. I stopped for water then continued on at a pace that felt like a crawl to me. About half a mile from the finish I stepped up the pace to try to just finish and get done with my uncomfortable race. About 300 feet from the finish I totally ran out of gas. I nearly walked across the line.
What would you do differently?:

Daily asthma medicine will hopefully fix my running races....

Warm down:

I nearly passed out after the race as I was having an asthma attack (figured this out the next day with my Doctor). I was hanging onto a fence post feeling dizzy and nauseous. I went straight to the massage tables so I could lay down. I felt absolutely crappy, and could hardly speak for the first half hour after the race. About thirty minutes after my finish, I finally dragged myself halfway across the park, and laid down as I could not handle driving. I laid in the grass under the beautiful sky and tried to figure out how and when I could leave!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

ASTHMA kicked my ass.

Event comments:

Great 5K series that is run in several places around the country. There is a kids race, great atmosphere, and lots and lots of stuff at the finish.
