Pre-race routine:

Got up early (5:00am)..excited to finally meet the Donkai for the first time. Showered, drank my 1 cup of coffee, pb/bagel, banana. Headed to Milwaukee...met up with Djdavey first and he navigated me through Milwaukee. Got to registration, picked up my goody bags and timing chip. Was looking for PeterAK and TriDDS, because I knew they would be in some sort of ridiculous costume. Finally spotted wasn't too hard..very tall. Drank one 8oz bottle of water and sipped on gatorade.
Event warmup:

Sported the red vampire contacts for my costume. Started my stretch and conversations with the Donkeys. Took lots of pictures.ate my GU and headed to the starting line.
  • 1h 31m 14s
  • 9.2 miles
  • 09m 55s  min/mile

I started out my pace way to fast. Was just feeling really good. By mile 6 I was bagging. My breathing sucked and couldn't get into a groove. I really have to work on that. My goal was to stay under 9 min mile. Did not make that.
What would you do differently?:

Would have started out a bit slower and worked on getting my pace better. And I really need to read the signs on the table at the drinking stations. Because at mile 8..what I thought was an energy drink...which i swigged down and immediately spit out..was actually BEER!
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched and headed to the bar for free beer. Met a lot of the Donkai Nation and had a blast.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Bad pace

Event comments:

I love lake runs, so this one was perfect.
