A huge crowd, said to be 50,000 people and the third largest "Race for the Cure" event in the world.
The competing runners started at 8am sharp and everybody took off fast. I decided to run/walk with a ratio of 3 minutes running and 30 seconds walking, just to see how that turned out. It was a bit weird to switch to walking after 3 minutes when everybody else went streaming past me. But I'm glad I did; it gave me a chance to catch my breath and in many cases, I didn't that much ground to other runners. I did that 3:30 cycle 6 times, through 21 minutes and then ran the rest of the way to finish in 25:38, or 8:02/mile. A fun event.
Here is the GPS track:
