Went out a bit quicker than planned but was trying to fight for position on the narrow trail. Settled in at a slower pace and got passed by a few people. Resisted the urge to speed up and just ran my own race. Once mile 8 hit I was passing those people again as they started zombie walking to the end.
What would you do differently?:

More training

Everyone got participation medals, race was limited to 1000 which was a good number.
