Yes, I think that was my meaning. Since I am slow anyways I do think I lost time doing an even SLOWER pace in the conga line. My "passing" would only be a fast walk pace. Problem is I worried I would pass only to be passed again. So I DO plan to maybe run a bit more on the road...as that will move me past a few folks and I will have plenty of time to catch my breath in the conga line.
I did make it thru all the check points in time and made it to the top. But I would like to do a bit better and really cushion my time on making it safely thru the cut off points.
