    Race conditions were less than ideal. A tornado went through town the night before, but I still think communication and logistics could have been more thought out. It seemed like there was no back-up plan. The start was delayed, communication was sporadic and largely unhelpful. The half and 5K ended up starting at the same time, which I know isn’t a big deal. But the beginning of a race is always so crowded and with the weather & extra runners, I wish they would’ve stuck to a staggered start for pacing sake. Things I liked: the course through downtown was awesome. The shirts were great! I LOVED the hype for King & Queen of the hill. As someone who doesn’t like hills, I ran the whole thing with all the excitement.

    It is a a humid, hot day so that didn’t help. Very little to no shade either. They tied it into a big festival at the end but with no shade and beat up from running I fled. Course not bad, same typical downtown Memphis.
