My dad and I drove from St. Louis for this race and we were not disappointed. We did the half marathon (#8 for me). For the last couple of years it had rained during race day, but we got very lucky this year with sunshine and 65 degree temps. Every year, they have a different theme to the race and this year was 80’s themed. Everything was themed from e.g. the race expo, the medal, the bib.

The course itself had a large out-and-back section. This was between miles 5 through 8, if I remember correctly. I personally don’t like out-and-backs, but to each their own. The race was fueled with bananas, so if you’re use to other fueling sources like gels, I suggest that you bring your own. Another thing that I thought was really cute was the L’Oreal lipstick booth right before the finish line. I definitely recommend this race to midwesterners. The bling is awesome and an overall fun experience.
