Fortunately I-10 was almost deserted when I headed to El Paso at 5:50 a.m. (it was completely shut down on my way home!) Got my bib number, no chip because it was a charity run, and warmed up. Put the gloves back in my car and lined up but there was a delay because people were literally signing up at the last minute. I've been practicing positive thinking so I told myself, "Remember how the start was delayed at 3M in Austin the year you hit your half PR there?" I kept telling myself to stay strong but unfortunately the dry heaves hit me at mile 2.9 which is pretty typical. I didn't lose much time, though, and finished strong. Hopefully Coach Neely can help me figure out how to deal with this.
Mile splits 7:57, 7:59, 8:40 & 7:27 pace at the end. AG score about 60%.
