I’d never been to Subtropolis so when I heard there was a race there, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to visit. My first impression was at packet pick up. Everything was super organized and flowed smoothly. The shirt is probably the best I’ve gotten so far… I’ll definitely be wearing it. I was nervous about parking, because a shuttle was needed. My nervousness was unfounded. There were plenty of buses and not really any wait. I’ll be honest, the scenery is kinda bland… You’re in an underground warehouse facility. Still it was kind of interesting to see the space. And a perk for a January race… the temperature inside the caves was comfortably in the 60’s. The course is very flat and paved which is nice and made the course easier to navigate. The medal was beautiful, but also ginormous. I know there is a trend toward bigger, blingier medals, but I’m not as much into that. I prefer a nice, standard sized, medal… but maybe I’m in the minority. To my mind, the best part of the race was the cheerleaders. This event benefits AbilityKC and the kids were awesome. They stayed to the very end making sure everyone was cheered and applauded… not just those in the front. It brought more than one smile to my face.
