Last year, I was back a little ways and spent the first mile passing slower runners. There were a few individuals walking up the first hill when I got there. I am in better shape this year and will try it again, since I was disappointed with last years finish. Hopefully, the wave start will help, but I am not sure that it will. There are a lot of “runners” where this will be their only race of the year. I hope to see a few other Hillrunners there.
