    This was one of the most scenic runs I’ve been on. With Fall Colors changing, it was really nice to run to appreciate it. Don’t get me wrong, there was plenty of Road and gravel grind but the parts of nature made it well worth it. It was very high priced for what you got in swag. The medal was lame and screamed: I refuse to have any creativity. The post race was a 3 on a scale of 10. The Strenths was that it was Awesomely supported. Plenty of water stations (not enough porta potties) and the course had plenty of Rolling hills … gentle not anything too steep but by the last 10K, you didn’t want to see another hill.
