Total Time = 8h 30m
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 3/
Pre-race routine:

Green Tea; 1/2 PB&H Cinnamon Waffle
Event warmup:

None really
  • 26m 13s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 26s  min/mile

Started out at a comfortable pace and eased into a harder pace. Hit the first mile split and knew I was out of shape - I felt like I was running much faster than the time showed. Pushed it as hard as I felt I could go and still make it to the end of 3 miles - had to walk on one hill that just kept going (HR was still 188 even with the walk break!), but was able to finish strong.
What would you do differently?:

Run more! :)
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, brought race stuff back to the car, watched 1K and tot trot, checked results. I was surprised to see that I got 3rd place in my age group - which was a fun surprise. I don't feel like I really "earned" this award, it was almost 3 minutes slower than my PR, but I'll take it!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Limited run training over the past 2 months

Event comments:

This was a fun race, great colored t-shirt (best cotton one this year). Hot chocolate & coffee at the finish - santa claus for the kids.

Hi Heather,
I was there too, about a minute or so slower than you though. The inclines were unexpected and a little painful.
