    Everything about the race was nice except for the puddles we had to run through at the beginning of the race – it had rained the night before – and my shoes and socks were wet for the entire race. This is a very small race (around 550 – 600 half and full marathoners), but the production was a professional as in many bigger races. No expo to speak of and almost nothing at the finish line, but the race was flat and scenic. Swag was nice.

    I had a really good time in Bismarck. I loved touring the state house and exploring the city. The marathon was fun and scenic. At one point, I almost took a wrong turn because it wasn’t clear which was the race went. Overall, I was pleased with my then-PR at this race.
