~ This race can use a little help with the race organization. We need maybe 2 more water stops in the 2nd half of the course for when it gets hot. Also, port-a-john need to come in pairs of 3-- one is not enough. Since this race was cancelled in 2009 and just coming back up, I'm sure they weren't able to get a good estimate of the number of runners participating. Also, the timers were all off-- but most runners wear watches anyways! The director DID send out a survey and listens to the runners, so I wouldn't be surprised if a few of these things were fixed for next year.
~ I was pleasantly surprised by the number of spectators. They seemed to be stationed all around the parks and cities so you never went TOO long without at least a small cheering section. They were always very excitable and even if they were out for their own runners, whey cheered on the rest of us crazies.
