Great race support! Similar course to the cherry blossom 10 miler so relatively flat, lots of monuments to see. Plenty of aid stations along the way and great camaraderie. The weather was not great but that is outside their control (temp was cool which was nice but the steady rain was not). Made for lots of blisters! Nice shirt and medal. I’m a back-of-the-pack runner so there was very little food left but a banana and granola bar are fine for me.

The course changes almost every year due to various construction but it’s virtually flat. The weather this year was perfection and the blossoms were at peak – I smiled the entire 10 miles because of how glorious it was. There are a lot of runners and it never really thins out so it’s hard to keep pace while dodging so many potholes and people. The expo had great speakers – I saw three of them on Friday and Saturday. The kids run on Saturday was fun. My six year old was thrilled to get a medal and t-shirt! I paid to upgrade my t-shirt and paid to get a medal. I’m a solid back-of-the-packer so there are few if any snacks left by the time I finish and that’s frustrating when you see other finishers (and non-finishers!!!) with armloads of extra goodies that are long gone for me. It’s a bummer but I got my banana, water and granola bar. This was the first year I’ve done bag check and while drop off was a breeze, pick up was a cluster. The race director addressed the issue and I’m sure it will be better next year. And I’ll find a way to pack my car keys so I don’t need to bag check. I use ParkMobile to secure a parking spot. My family takes the metro and then we all drive home. Maybe someday metro will open up earlier.
