Things I learned? Get to the starting point a bit early. For the first complete mile it was like trying to run though a club. We had started in the back (what can I say, I had to use the potties and the line was long!) and had a lot of walkers/slow runners to get past- in volumes.
I'm happy with how things went though. I know there will always be a bit of a crowd at a popular race, but I will applaud any race that has staggered starts ;)
I had already planned on taking it easy. Being 23.5 weeks pregnant and not used to running on cement OR in evenings- I knew I would be a little out of my realm.
I went to have fun- and you bet I did! And guess what? I didnt do so bad after all!
