Pre-race routine:

The night before the race, we met Julia "Gotta Run" for dinner and visited her local tri store. It was great to finally meet her and she gave us a really good run down about the trail.

No good sleep the night before--between the snoring (hubby) and the dog waking me up, it was a very fitful night. Bowl of cereal & coffee in the morning. Felt pretty good considering.
Event warmup:

Not much. Just a little jogging and stretching, but nothing very serious. No extra energy to waste :-) Had a gel 10 minutes before the race started.
Run

Comments:

Aid station at 3.28 (1/4 marathon turn around) Stumbled BIG TIME coming in to this aid station and nearly hit the deck. Always has to happen in front of a crowd! Next aid station was at 4.65 (15k turn around). Tried water and coke here--all good, but no gel. Hit the final aid station and had two cups of heed. The last 2.5 miles were hard work.
What would you do differently?:

Should have taken a gel with me. The website said they would have gel at the aid stations, but they didn't.

I wouldn't do anything differently. I paced myself well today and was able to RUN the entire race with decreasing splits for each mile in the second half of the race. It's the first time I've run anything near this distance since April. I'm a happy camper.

Warm down:

Eat, drink, walk around, repeat. Waited for awards so hubby could get his hardware for winning his age group!

Event comments:

I love Planet Adventure races.

Great job, Jayne! I'm so glad you liked the course! And yeah, just wait until you do a full face plant in front of an aid station. Been there, done that. Cool

Great job! I ran the half marathon and I thought the course and the organization were great. Lots of good people and a well run race (pun intended).
