I wanted to finish in less than 1 hour, but race my own race. I started out at a comfortable pace that I knew I could sustain for the duration of the race. I kept focused on two people who were in front of me and kept them at the same distance throughout the race. I picked up the pace in the last half mile and then sprinted to the finish. Overall, I had a great race and did exactly what I set out to do.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, I executed my race plan and ran my own race.
Post race
Warm down:

Drank some water and walked around a bit before heading back to the car.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing, other than more and longer intervals.

Event comments:

Great race!
