Had a good run. Was pacing a friend. We were in corral E, rather than corral C, where I was supposed to start.
It was crowded at the start, and really didn't get any better. I think that I may not do it again, as it is too crowded to go for a PR.
I felt great just about all day. I think I could have run a bit faster. Made the mistake of paying too much attention to my watch, and the foot pod isn't well calibrated.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster.
Post race
Warm down:

Cookie, beer, churros and stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not much. i was pacing a friend, so it wasn't really for me. he was beat up by mile 9 and we missed his goal pace by 2 minutes.

Event comments:

I still like this race, the course is great. However, it is getting too crowded.
