Comments:

What a blast! I pretty much let any time goal go when I realized it would be much more fun to have fun along the way--high fiving kids and yelling "Thank yuh, thank yuh very much!" everytime I heard GO ELVIS! It was wall to wall runners so it ws actually fairly difficult to keep a steady pace.
What would you do differently?:

Not a thing...it was a total blast!
Post race
Warm down:

Walking allllll the way back to the car

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My cool Elvis style
