I had a pretty good run for this race last year but definitely not this year. I expected it to be crowded like last year and it was. I spent a lot of the time weaving in and out of the groups of people. I also expected to be spending a lot of time after the finish sitting around so I ended up wearing way too many clothes. After the first mile I was burning up so I slowed down and just jogged to the finish line. Just like last year the race has a party-like atmosphere--just don't plan on getting a PR!
