Comments:

I started off with my wife Emily who was doing the 10k (they start at the same time and break off at mile 3). Congested start but spread out pretty quickly.

I was trying to keep a 8:55/mile pace to get a PR and was doing good staying below for the whole race.

This course is flat and fast. At around mile 9, there is a good mile of about .75mi long. You get paid back on the way down but it will make you use some effort.

I felt great on this run and pushed throughout. About a mile I could hear the music and just kept pushing.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing
Post race
Warm down:

Finished and grabbed a beer with Emily. We met-up with some other friends and got some food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing

Event comments:

This a a fun race with a great crowd. I did get that PR so I was way happy!
