        I'm not much of an experienced racer, but I would say try not to start off too fast, because that was my big mistake in my first race.  My 1st mile was super fast (for me), by mile 2 I started paying for it, and I had nothing left in me to push the last half mile.  Ah, live and learn.  That race is still my 5K PR though so I was happy with it regardless.

         

        Enjoy yourself!
