Pre-race routine:

Love having races literally in your back yard. Drove down with Ashley and Kevin and waited for the start.
Event warmup:

Nothing except the short walk from the parking garage to Phi Beta Kappa Hall where the start was.
  • 44m 20s
  • 4.97 miles
  • 08m 55s  min/mile

Really only did this race so my oldest, Ashely, would have someone to do it with. Didn't really care about my time. Started in the front of the pack and I think that may have helped push me a bit. With this race being a national championship, there were a lot of the older AG people up with us and I made it a point to not let them pass me! Worked for the most part. Happy with my time.
What would you do differently?:

Could have pushed a bit harder. At least I didn't let the older people pass me!

Warm down:

Walked down to where the food was, but wasn't really excited about BBQ and beer at 900 in the morning so we grabbed our stuff and went home.
