Course was really tough, I wasn't expecting such a steep course. This was the first year of the race so I expected some confusion in the beginning, but the start was a mess. They combined the 5k and the 10k in the same wave start and I could tell there were a ton of newbies. It was unusually warm that morning and the humidity was up because it had just rained for, oh maybe 10 days straight? Made for an interesting run. Once the field thinned about a half mile in it was fine.
What would you do differently?:

Not much, I was pretty well prepared but the heat, hills and the trail run slowed me down.

Lots of water / powerade

Event comments:

I think it being the inaugural race really hampered things. Also, there were close to 1000 runners registered but the timing machine only recorded about 400 of those times. Between 56 minutes and 1:37, there were no recorded times for either the 5k or the 10k which was disappointing. I have no idea how I actually did against the field.
