                 breakfast 2             English muffin w/ jelly
                 (breakfast 1 was 2 1/2 hrs prior to race; breakfast 2 was an hour prior to race)   20 min prior to start I ate a gu then at every mile I ate 1 sports bean.  Oh yeah, can't forget the water- I started drinking as soon as I got up and continued till race time.
Here are my Garmin stats:Move it Memphis 10K Garmin Stats.  I'm very pleased with my recovery time and my last mile time.  I am really focusing on finishing faster and starting out slower.  Alrighty then, it's playtime with kids this afternoon then John & I are off to dinner & a play with friends!  Grown up time!
