It was hot, but hey, it was also in south Florida, thankfully in October and not July. Course was nice and flat, but a bit longer than 5K. I was thrilled to win my age group and snag an extra medal!

My wife and I did this more-or-less on a whim, and WHAT A WHIM it turned out to be! We both did the Gator Double (half marathon AND 5K). Between the two of us we came home with 10 MEDALS and LOADS of kool shwag! After the race they apologized for 1) a slightly late start (I say THANKS for not making us run with a headlamp); 2) some mud…uh, have you never done any trail runs?; and 3) some unsightly garbage (yeah, that detracted from the otherwise awesome ambiance, but they could scope that out ahead of time, arrange for a garbage truck or two, and ask for volunteers, I would have gladly pitched in on that).

My wife and I plan to hit ALL of their races…

The climb was doable; the aid stations were the bomb (fresh fruit, burritos, chicken broth, and a LOT more); the course could do with a LOT fewer roots; I fell 5 times and tripped over 60 times. We’re still waiting for some of the promised swag.

I don’t think they could find more hills in all of Michigan. When you weren’t going down, you were going up…I burned through my Tailwind and did the last 6 miles on Gatorade…definitely not as helpful as Tailwind…
