Event warmup:

short warm up run, stretched, watched the boys run the 1 mile fun run
  • 35m 44s
  • 4.97 miles
  • 07m 11s  min/mile

not a bad, but not a great run. went out way too fast. First mile was 6:17, second mile was 6:50. No idea about the third mile because the guys giving splits was off: his time would have but another sub 7 mile in, but there was no way I was still going that fast. Right hamstring got really tight last 1/2 mile, so much that I was worried I had pulled it. By Sunday it was better, so I think I just tightened up
What would you do differently?:

try to maintain a more even pace of around 6:55 to 7:00. I think I could have maintained that pace over the race instead of blowing up like I did from going out too fast
