    This was a small race but very pleasant. The start and finish line is in a pleasant shopping restaurant area on the waterfront. Parts of the course are run with Mt. Ranier in the background.

    I thought this was the perfect size race. There were plenty of runners to include pacers for 10 minute increments, but the field was never elbow-to-elbow once we were over the start line. The biggest downside to that the start and finish are miles apart, so runners are shuttled to the starting line. This is okay for the marathoners who start about an hour after the shuttles stop. However, the Half Marathoners have a long, minimum 2 hour wait for the race to begin. Thankfully, they offer bagels, peanut butter, bananas, and coffee while waiting! And bag check (school busses) don’t leave until shortly before the start of the Half, so you can wear plenty of warm clothing until it’s just about time to run. The course itself has some hills and few spectators, though residents come out to clap as you run through neighborhoods. Volunteers handing out water and Nuun were plentiful. Overall, a good race aside from the early start with a long wait.
