Pre-race routine:

I felt pretty crummy this morning. Just ate a piece of toast and some coffee. Got myself ready and left at about 9:10 am.
Event warmup:

Nothing. Stood in line (twice) to register. I left my pre-filled out form in the car, so had to hunt one down and fill it in again. Got chipped and walked to the start with Dudley and Mike.

5/8 in AG
Did not try to "race". I was just out there to get it done because otherwise chances are I wouldn't have done a thing today. After about 1.7 miles, I was feeling good so I picked up the pace and tried to maintain it. It's a good motivation to pass people, which is what kept me going. I walked the water stop so I could get 2 cups of water in me. I'd started the race wishing I'd drank something other than coffee ahead of time. Let's just say I didn't approach this run with many brain cells working. But I didn't feel particularly thirsty at all during the run. Maybe it was the snowflakes blowing in my face that satisfied my thirst? I also didn't need to use the wad of paper napkins I'd stuffed in my pockets ahead of time. I was sure I was going to have several bobbystocks stops along the way, but that wasn't an issue. whew..... Around mile 6 or so, my ankles were getting a bit sore, but it wasn't too bad.

I listened to music most of the time, so that was a huge help in getting me through this.
What would you do differently?:

I'm not sure I'd do too much differently because I didn't approach it as a "race." It was nice to run hard, but not so hard that I felt bad the entire time! I really enjoyed the run!
I should have drank some water before the start, though.
Post race
Warm down:

Jogged an extra .83 mile to look for Mike and Dudley. They ran a really good race! I was SO relieved to see Dudley still running away, instead of being driven by in an ambulance! :)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Ha! Let's see! Extra poundage, too much crap to eat, not enough training, the list goes on and on really.

Event comments:

Yellow Jacket always does a nice job. Very organized, lots of runners, it was a nice atmosphere and a great way to get the year started!

Nice job for a long run on a cool day when you weren't really "racing". Under 9 minute pace is great.
