    This is a race organized by a charity trying to cure a disease; it is not anti-abortion, if you were wondering from the name.

    It is set up well. It’s a moderately sized crowd, not a giant race and not a tiny one. Parking is not that difficult considering it’s near the Lincoln Memorial and reflecting pool of the national mall. I was there 45 minutes before the start, and I parked about 2 long blocks away.

    The route takes you along the Potomac. Unless you run regularly in DC, you probably don’t know this area. I lived there 15 years, and I never traveled this path. It’s paved the whole way, with moderately interesting scenery. It is flat. Weather was perfect. Two aid stations.

    I had run a 10k the day before, through the woods in the suburbs. My performance was my usual lackluster self: top of the bottom 1/6. The way it goes, you loop around folks a couple of times. I thought, wow, I’m doing great. Those folks are fast. And I’m ahead of them. Except I was behind them.

    I’d run this again. It was a no-nonsense, no-fuss, very nice event.
