    I am not fast enough for Boston soooo…
    Hyannis was a good choice. We spent a day in Boston prior to driving down to Hyannis. It was chilly and windy the whole weekend.

    We stayed at the Hyannis Travel Inn. VERY nice people and they had a Stay One Night, Get the 2nd Free deal!

    Pros:
    -Lengthy day of packet pickup & Expo (We did not rush to Saturday’s packet pickup which closed at 5pm)
    -Race starts at 10am so we were able to sleep a full night and not rush breakfast or getting ready. Plus the temperature was a bit warmer at 10am, which helped me being from the south.
    -Parking was easy – there were lots of volunteers directing parking traffic.
    -Water stops were plentiful and well stocked.
    -On my second loop – a family near a water station was giving out Girl scout cookies!
    -The course was nice with a mixture of beach views and beautiful neighborhoods.

    Cons:
    -A few more toilets along the course would have been nice.
    -Once short section of the course was along a busy road. During the second loop of the course, traffic was much heavier. Having the cones there to separate us was great, but in a few spots the pavement/curb was in really bad shape and you almost had to get in the road go around it.

    Overall-The race was enjoyable. The area is beautiful and full of history and things to see. This time of year a lot of restaurants/stores are closed for the season, but this forces you to eat where the locals eat. You also get to explore the town without tons of vacationers.

    Would I do it again – Yes.
