We ran this race last year, we both were still "new" to running and I didn't own a garmin yet. Now my reasons for that statement.
What I Didn't like
*There was an announcement made several times if you did NOT run a 6min mile do NOT start in the front. Gerard and I do NOT run 6 min miles but he always makes up start fairly close to the start(we can hang with the beginning crowd long enough to get into our comfortable pace). I got pushed to the side of the road on top of the median, almost tripped, only for most of those same people to just about stop completely in front of me less than .25 into the race.
*There is a very steep little hill leading up to a concrete bridge, this year there was students on this bridge cheering people one, that part was nice, however they crowded the way and at times was nothing but in the way! Please stay on the sidewalks next time!
*Last year there was Halloween lights close to the road around the Capital, this year they was way back close to the Governor's house:(
*When I reached mile 2 (by their marker) my garmin only read 1.79???
What I Liked
*Such a family friendly event! Music playing, games for small children, street blocked off so you can come and go! Love it!
*The students cheering everyone on! (Just please stay back)
*The weather was beautiful, clear and cool.
*My finishing time!!! Last year my time was 29:42 this year 24:48!! Oh yes I did cut almost 5 whole mins OMG!!!
