Nice goin, Captain
If you had run that race here you would have probably beaten a third of the field, and in some cases more than half It sounds like the French take their racing seriously

Echoing what Jim said...2 years ago (almost exactly) I ran a 10K and finished in 1:08:22 and was #290/448 so still beat over 1/3. Your time would have put you at #231 - or just below 50%.
Also I noted you said some of the people who you passed dropped out when they couldnt maintain their too fast pace. So be proud that you didnt get suckered in to running too fast at the beginning. Most beginners arent able to hold back when the crowd takes off like that.
Nice Job Captain Atom! I think it really cool that you decided to run a 10K as your first race, most people in the US start off with a 5K then work up the a 10K. Looks like you're running program is solid 30 to 60 min runs 4-5 times a week? I would just keep it up!
Well done Captain!
Keep it up. Running is the most rewarding sport you can do.
