    Warm morning, I left with plenty of time to get my packet (there was 0 line) and take things back to my car before the race started. The shirts run REALLY small FYI. Otherwise the little flyers and deals were nice, but very centered on Hales Corners businesses which is a hike for me.

    The course was running through the local neighborhoods. Truly over a thousand people showed up, lots of them in very Americana gear. It was very warm, but there were TONS of spectators in front of their houses; some of them with sprinklers, hoses, and squirt guns to cool off the runners! Aid stations seemed well spaced out and the course was very flat other than a lovely hill in the last mile.

    Post-race they quickly sent emails out with times! I heard people talking about it and was happy to already see mine when I checked! Post-race snacks were fantastic..lots of fruit, sugar cookies, and of course BEER! The older guys serving up the beer could barely keep up with demand! I kind of want to volunteer it next year to help them out! Overall I really liked the race and would definitely recommend it to others!
