              Hey, already Sub 30. Good job, KPS. Now go gift me a land permit and shit. 

               

              Sure thing!  Smile

              Do you even run?

                  You meet the best friends at races!

                   

                  Congrats! Looking at those splits I think you need to start just a wee bit faster. Did you get enough of a warm up with the temps being a little chilly?

                    There really wasn't any space to warm up, so I started this one cold.  I'm always worried about starting too fast, so I try to go slow in the beginning.  You think I'm being too conservative?

                    Do you even run?

                      Definitely too conservative. Also the colder it is the more important the warm-up. I thought you said the race was very small, so I don't understand why there wasn't any space to warm-up. At the very least you could have jogged the last mile of the course and back, which would also help familiarize you with the finish and when to start your kick.

                        Way to go, Kay!!  You totally ROCKED that race!!   Love your new avatar!  That's what I picture when I read your comments - a smiling, happy, bubbly person.

                          I guess because it was mostly throughout the neighborhood, I felt like there wasn't anywhere close to the starting venue to warm up.  Any more than 100 yards or so, and I wouldn't even be able to see the start.  I guess you're right, though.  I probably would have had a better time if I had warmed up.  Lesson learned, and all that.  I'll be keeping that in mind for my next race.  Thank you!

                          Do you even run?

                              LRB is right on the caffeine withdrawal. If I don't drink any, I get headaches. I always have a cup before a race (usually iced, it seems to get me moving. Only problem is it makes me have to pee like crazy. I've stopped drinking them before halfs since bathrooms seem to be a premium at those).

                               

                              Congrats on the sub-30 PR!!!
