Pre-race routine:

GEt up and dressed, etc. Start drinking water and gatorade. Had a doubleshot an hour before and antoerh 1/2 hour before race. Had a couple of coughing attacks. Fighting a chest cold.
Event warmup:

Some stretching and light jog about 1/2 mile. Mostly just relaxing.
  • 1h 41m 30s
  • 9.3 miles
  • 10m 55s  min/mile

Overall I feel very good about this run. I have a half mary in two weeks, so this was a good practice race. I feel I paced pretty good. I started slwoing down in heat, but next race will be more shaded and aid stations every mile. I especially feel good after the terrible long run I had last week. Once again, legs were fine, just HR. Kept HR below 170 until mile 6, then high 170's for miles 7-8 and 180's in last 1.3 miles.
What would you do differently?:

Next time ask race director ahead of time how many aid stations (not posted anywhere) and bring my fuel belt. Also wouldn't have this chest cold or any coughing attacks :-)
Post race
Warm down:

walking and lots of gatorade.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

It started getting hot and found out on course not enough aid stations. Only 4 stations and 2 only had water. I am used to having 5oz gatorade each mile in the heat. Also chest cold.

Event comments:

need more aid stations

Hi Cameron-Congrats on finishing your 15K. That's amazing, I don't think I've ever come close to running that distance. Gives me something to look forward too And to do it all with a chest cold!? You're a trooper! Best of luck with your training...

Congrats on the race Cameron.  I don't know what your goal time was but I think that you ran a very good race in preparation for the 1/2 mary coming up.  Now just get rid of that chest cold.  Good luck in two weeks.
