Started at the front but in the second row of people. Went out very fast and my only goal was to find Tim and make sure I kept pace and beat him. Did the first mile in 7:32 and was feeling how hard I was pushing. Passed Tim a little after the first mile and stayed ahead. Was over my max HR the entire run. Coming around the final turns of the course I wasn't sure how far I had left and though I sprinted across the finish line still could've run harder earlier and longer. Still a great race and VERY happy with my time!
