    * The RD gave details about the course at the start
    * Morning bib pickup
    * Parking right by the start/finish line
    * beautiful scenery, bike path
    * top-notch national anthem singer
    * enthusiastic volunteers
    * enthusiastic timing staff (someone gave me a printout of my result and my age group award at the end!)
    * despite it being my 3rd worse time ever, and finishing 3rd to last, I won an AG award! yay small races!
    * my slow time was (I suspect–lots of time to reflect from miles 18-26) a result of this being my 10th marathon in 365 days… or the ‘overreaching’ at Pocatello 3 weeks prior…
    * The course was very doable, but it’s still 26.2 miles!
    * it was raining from mile 7-14, then 17-end (for me). nice temps and partly-cloudy–no need for sunglasses 🙂
    * I enjoyed the course on the bike path, with the two spurs. It gave a bit of variety, and a chance to see people. I was alone for quite a while in a small race like this (which was to be expected).
    * nice swag–the medal and shirt are nice, the jelly beans and lip balm hit the spot for me!
    * easy logistics to fly in/out of PDX, stay in the burbs.

    Gotta love a race where one of the sponsors is the Boring Brewery! Nice, well-run marathon with that comfortable, small-town feel. Most of the course is on a rails-to-trails system, so level, secluded, verdant and quiet. Great aid stations with enthusiastic staffers to help you along. Particularly enjoyed the Luau Station at Mile 16; can personally recommend their rum punch. The Boring race shirt and Boring medal will bring a smile and the swag bag included a Boring Brewery pint glass and goat soap! What’s not to like?!?
