    At the start of the race the weather was cool and drizzly, but as soon as the race started I wished that I did not choose to wear a light windbreaker shell and just ran in a t-shirt.
    In the first couple of miles there is a strange out and back. I wondered why the race just did not start a mile or so back on the Foothills Trail. Although I had fun seeing all the runners on that part.
    The race had good support with water and I believe NUUN as well. I did not run with a water bottle, so I got water at almost every single station. I had my own gel, and I don’t know if those were offered.
    Along the course were beautiful trees and in one area you run over a bridge with rushing water underneath.
    At about mile 11.5, there was another weird loop that you do through a neighborhood/golf course, it’s a nice area but again, why not start the race further back?… I’m sure there were logistical reasons why that was done, but it was a little annoying to have to do a loop. I saw a runner getting confused and almost going the wrong way on this. Once you come out of that neighborhood though, it’s a straight shot to the finish.
    Overall, this is a good flat course. I like hills and elevation changes, so it was sometimes a little boring, but If you like flat, than this is for you!
    Oh, and good post run snacks, granola bars, bananas, chips, etc. cause that’s why people run, right?!
