This was the 7th hand of a freeroll, I had AQs, limped, and 2 go all-in. I folded, so what would you have done? Would you have went with the "it's only a freeroll" mentality, or played it like it was real? I probably should have raised 3x - 5x before flop, but I always get killed with AQ's & AK's!

Why? Aren't you supposed to play freerolls as you would a real money tournament, and doesn't that make this a valid question?

I gave up trying to figure out freeroll players a long time ago, common sense does not apply so how can you expect me to figure out a hand? of course this is not directed towards you but who you are playing against. Its a free roll you have AQ screw it shove preflop!

freerolls are just donkfests in the first 2hrs and should be played loosely by most during this period.
Being a freeroll there is not much of a sound strategy to these, especially in the early stages and for the original question, I would have to say this is an auto-call for the reasons I stated above.
