Event warmup:

Well it was New Years so I was out partying till 5am, slept for a smidge over 3 hours, woke up pretty hungover but without an alarm which was amazing because I probably would have slept through the race otherwise.

My only "warm up" was jogging from my car to registration to see how I was feeling... awful is the answer.
  • 19m 52s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 23s  min/mile

I knew this was going to hurt and did it ever!! I went out way too fast, then slowed down way too much but overall it ended nicely. There was only 1 water stop so I grabbed 2 cups because 1) only have 2 hands and 2) I was crazy thirsty. I'm glad I didn't puke.

Here are the splits...
Mile 1: 6:04, HR - 174
Mile 2: 6:56, HR - 180
Mile 3: 6:14, HR - 179
Last part: :40, HR - 183

Either the miles were off, marked wise, or I just really suck at pacing. However Most of Mile 2 was into a headwind so that could have helped with the slow down.
What would you do differently?:

Not spend the night before getting crazy drunk till 5am
Post race
Warm down:

ahhhh, sat around a bit. Then went to the car to get my sweatpants

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

I only say there weren't enough drink stations because I wanted like 20 on this day!

Otherwise Kale Running puts on awesome events and our finisher medal was a Dog Tag, cute.
