Post race
Warm down:

Not much walked some and went to the car and sat down. Felt similar to the Polar Bear Run in 2006 but not quite as bad

What limited your ability to perform faster:

First mile was too fast.

Event comments:

Good effort considering this was my first race in several months. I felt strong at the start and I thought I backed off but I guess I didn't. It was cold but not too terribly bad, 35 degrees F at the start. Started raining towards the end. I'm in a tough age group, very competitive. Good Thanksgiving Run. Amazing how fast the race organizers can get the race results up on the website.
