Bristol Independence Rhode Race

Several options were available for package pick-up. Really nice shirt and finishers medal. The course was safe and well marked. Plenty of aid stations along the route. Route was a nice blend of town, waterside and park setting. Mostly flat. Post race food also good - Cosi pizza.

Phoenix Marathon

This was the first race I ran, and although I wasn't sure if I had prepared enough in advance, I had a blast. The pre-race packet pick-up was well organized with lots of sponsors, free stuff, and friendly volunteers. The race shirts were super cool and included removable sleeves. The course itself was flat and fast, which pushed me to a new PR. There were lots of hydrating stations with energy...

Rock N' Sole

A loop over the Hoan Bridge followed by a long out and back along the lakefront and through neighborhoods and a park space. The bridge is about three miles long, and the rest of the course is moderately hilly with a steep hill before mile 7.

Although there are a couple down hill stretches, they are mostly uphill. They have a contest in the stretch for 'King and Queen of the Hill.' The prize for having the fastest time up the hill is $$. This hill climb lasts for...

Hatfield and McCoy Half Marathon

What a great race for #40! Plenty of pre and post race festivities to enjoy. Tech T and good size finishers medal specific for each race. Plenty of volunteers with water, Gatorade and fresh fruit. No fueding - just running.

Minneapolis Half Marathon

Overall this was a good race and well-organized. It's point-to-point and finishes along the river in downtown. I parked a few blocks from the finish ($3) and bought a race-provided shuttle ticket ($6) to bring me to the start. I think this worked better than parking at the start because I was able to hop in my car immediately after the race rather than waiting on a shuttle to take me back out...

American Hero 25k

Race was delayed 20 minutes. Packet pick up was a bit dis-organized the day of the race due to a traffic accident. Course is 5 loops of 5k, there are a few hills that make the last loop harder then the first.
