Signed up at the last minute. Kids wanted to do the 1 mile race and I was just going to watch, but figured it would be good to see how my 5k time was coming along. Was originally going to target 7:12 pace, but ended up getting swept up at a 6:30's pace at the start. Held on and pushed slowing to slightly above 7:00 pace at 2/3rd's then back to high 6:00's to the end. Was thrilled to finish sub 7:00.
What would you do differently?:

Still need to work on pacing a negative split.
