Via a note on running ExecStartPre commands as root and the service as a specified user. I think this may be an issue for TM351 VM when checking that directories are created? (That said, if the VM creates the directory and then vagrant mounts a similarly pathed one over it, does the service stay happy?)

ExecStartPre=-/bin/mkdir -p /run/thing
ExecStartPre=/bin/chmod -R 777 /run/thing

From the docs:

Takes a boolean argument. If true, the permission-related execution options, as configured with User= and similar options (see systemd.exec(5) for more information), are only applied to the process started with ExecStart=, and not to the various other ExecStartPre=, ExecStartPost=, ExecReload=, ExecStop=, and ExecStopPost= commands. If false, the setting is applied to all configured commands the same way. Defaults to false.
