    Nice medal. Good shirt. Easy course, although it is narrow the whole way. It was not organized well. The buses did not run on time. I waited for over an hour before I saw a bus. Even though I was there waiting 45 minutes before the last bus was to run, I ended up getting to the back check while they played the anthem. Even though it was their fault we were late, they started the race. So, there I was having to run behind almost the entire field of over 1,000 runners. If it is you fault Runners are late, give them 5 minutes after they get off your bus to check their gear and hit the potty. That being said, I bet they get it right next time. It was the first year for the race. See the medal in the picture.

    This was the first year of this race, and it went off almost seamlessly! When an issue with buses caused a delay, the race organizers clearly communicated the new start time and made sure it went off smoothly. The course was well maintained and fairly flat, with lots of amazing cheering groups. The after-race party was great, with a beer tent, sandwiches and free massages. I hope to run this one again.
