Total Time = 35m 17s
Overall Rank = 15/101
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 5/11
Pre-race routine:

Went Christmas shopping with my wife at Kohls in Cookeville. Got some good deals.
Event warmup:

A little 1/2 mile jog to loosen up.
  • 35m 17s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 04s  min/mile

Wanted to run a 35:00 5 miler so 35:17 was close. I went out just right for this race but the small rollers were just enough to keep me in the 7 min mile range. The large hill came in at about mile 3 to 3 1/2 and gave me the 7:16 mile.
What would you do differently?:

Should have pushed a little harder in the middle of the race.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Getting over a sinus thing.

Event comments:

I figured finishing 15th would have been good enough for an age group spot but nooooo....5th 6th 10th 13th were in my age group. 2nd and 3rd overall were two 52 year old men running right at 30:00. We had a big pasta lunch after we finished. Now to get ready for an 11k this weekend at the next State Park run.
