Event warmup:

Massaged the legs with the stick and a quick 3/4 mile run.
  • 26m 36s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 33s  min/mile

I knew it was going to hurt and it did. Kept 1 guy in my sights for most of the run then with about .3 of a mile left he looked back probably thinking I was too far back so I attacked then. At that point I was about 45 seconds behind him, kicked it up to sub 8 min miles and only finished about 5 seconds behind him. Only a minute slower than my PR so with a little training I should be able to crush it.
What would you do differently?:

Start farther up
Post race
Warm down:

grabbed a water and headed home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of running for the last week
my weight
