Pre-race routine:

Drove 30 minutes to the race site. Met up with my running group and hit the porta potties about 3 times.
Event warmup:

Tried to keep warm. Stood at the start line holding up a sign that I was an 11 minute mile pace leader and several people started lining up behind me.
  • 2h 26m
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 08s  min/mile

I volunteered to be a pace leader for the 11 minute milers. This proved to be very challenging. I set my garmin with a pace alert to keep me within the 11 minute mile pace. There was a nasty headwind all the way to the turnaround and the gradual climb was a bitch. It was tough and I couldn't wait for the turnaround so the wind would be behind my back. It was fun to have a group of people to run with, most of them stayed with me until the turnaround.
Post race
Warm down:

I was hurting from slowing my pace for the entire run. I walked around a bit and ate some breakfast.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I had no expectations for a PR since I was a pace leader. Just doing this race for fun.
