    Day 1 : I had never run with this organization before and wasn’t certain what to expect. Only about 50 marathon runners and slightly less halves. The course was run around a very scenic lake. 7 laps plus a little extra. Comfortable conditions and the aid station was set up at the stsrt/finish where there was lots of food and water to fuel up with. A nice t shirt and a small medal in the shape of the state of Maine.

    Overall Rating: Really good. Enjoyed the longer loops (3.5ish miles).

    Course Difficulty: Flat except for one highway bridge. Pleasant view across a city retention pond.

    Course Scenery: Not a lot to look at, it a couple of friends and I did see different things every time we went around, so it kept things interesting.

    Race Production: Great. Excellent food, and plenty of it at the one aid station. No frills bob pickup and start.

    Race Swag: Good. Nice state shaped medal, and a dry blend t shirt.

    My Performance: It was ok for the third of 8 in a row. No complaints.

    I had initially planned this as a day off, but the RD happened to be running at NY earlier in the week and talked me into it (you other runners know how hard that was). Glad I decided to do it, there is something about taking on an entire Challenge and completing it.
