Pre-race routine:

Normal coffee and oatmeal. Pick up J.Corn and we drove down to finish line then took Marta back to start. Found some free porto potties on the other side of the Ritz and a place to do a little jogging to get warmed up.

Gel 1 hour out and 30 mins out from start. Water also.
Event warmup:

Jogged around the Ritz parking deck for 10 mins.

Comments:

Very happy with this race. First mile was normal as folks started to ramp up. Miles 2 and 3 are downhill and I felt good so I pushed the pace a bit. Saw American Badass and gave him a slap on the ass as I passed him.

For me, the whole race is built around mile 4. That's Heartbreak hill. If you can maintain a good pace on that mile, the rest of the race comes together nicely.

After that hill, just tried to hammer home with everything I had left.

Mile splits were
0:07:05
0:06:37
0:06:47
0:07:33
0:07:23
0:07:03

What would you do differently?:

I was on the verge of puking on mile 5 so although I'd like to say I could have pushed harder on that mile, I really don't think I could have.

Warm down:

Waited a few minutes for J.Corn and then we left. It was nice to get in, run, earn the shirt and get out.
