Gorgeous fall colors (about: 2009)|

I only did the half, and it was three weeks after a full marathon, so I had a few strikes against me. But the route was hard, especially because it started out as an uphill! Thankfully, the weather was ideal and the fall colors were grand! Support was good, though there were really no spectators - but that's not why you'd choose this race! Do it for the peace and the natural beauty.
The expo was a little chaotic, but it WAS the first year for this race, so it's understandable.
