About Me

  • Running club(s):

    Runbelievable

  • Rave race:
  • Race that's calling my name:
  • I run because:

    I like the stress relief and sense of accomplishment. I can be hard on myself because I get competitive with myself in races. My biggest accomplishment is finishing a marathon considering I had a leg lengthening when I was 13. Buying running shoes is even a challenge for me with messed up feet.

This race has a lot of crowd support and entertainment on the course. I really enjoyed the patient champions on the course. Loved running by the hospital and were kids holding signs from rooms and waving. Very well organized race from corrals to finish line. Loved how they gave everyone a bag to put goodies in as they hand post race food out. Also really liked the fireworks at the beginning of the race. Highly recommend this race. Had runners around me at all times which is not always the case for me.

This was a well put on race with lots of participants. I like how they have different start times for 5k and 10k. I didn’t race this because I did my friend’s first ever 5k with her. But they gave me an opportunity to enjoy the views.
I liked how they did wave type starts. They would start a group and then way a few minutes and start the next group. They had finish line well organized and kept people moving by having a long chute.
I really liked that you get to pick shirt with favorite school. I also liked how the race bib had the emblem for that school as well. Very unique to this race.
I loved how each school was represented by tents at after party as well.

Very well organized and great swag. Really liked the party type atmosphere. Course had some hills but last mile was downhill to finish. The only think I didn’t like is the course was a quarter of a mile short.

I enjoyed this race. 2nd mile pretty difficult. But last mile plus all downhill which I loved. I loved having the hot dogs and they were delicious. Definitely low attendance compared to past years. I did get a 5k course PR.

Love this race. This is my 2nd time participating. I love the rolling hills and being out in the country. Very organized and people on course energize you with cowbells and saying Moo. Best post race food. Was very impressed with the allergy table with amount of gluten-free items. Best medal ever.

This was an amazing race. Loved going through the parks and the scenery of downtown. I loved the entertainment and people at aid stations. Also lots of crowd support. I loved the people on bikes who were handing out Kleenex as well as other things all along the course.
Only thing that maybe could be improved is the expo. Didn’t seem like much there at all.

This was first and maybe only full marathon. Lots of entertainment and crowd support the first half of the race. The crowd support and entertainment were lacking on the marathon course. Marathon is small and had I not had friends surprise me and run with me. I would have ran a lot of it by myself. But not real difficult course at all.

This is an amazing race. The crowd support and entertainment along the course are amazing. Love the hoses and ice bags. Love the flyover before the race.
Two things I believe can improved. First why start a 7 mile race at 8am at end of July. I think 7 or 7:30 would be a better start time. Also very anal about waves yet they start everyone together and don’t start them in waves. It is very crowded at the start that I feel starting in the waves would be better.
