It was AWESOME! (about: 2012)|
V. V. from Sycamore, IL (9/17/12)
Super easy packet pick-up! I will actually wear this race shirt and use the gear bag again! Nice little expo too. Loved Pacer Jen with the 4:45 finishing time. What a great experience! I was so sad when I had to split off for the Fall Final 20 course. Had I known, I would have registered for the full marathon to run with her! Beautiful scenic course that was well mapped. Gels and oranges were actually available along the course...And I am a mid-pack runner! Great spots for family and friends to view runners along the course. Loved the awesome crowd support. People actually yelled out my name and cheered me on. Oh wait, my name was on my bib-Nice touch! Snacks after the race were plentiful and what a great selection! Awesome finisher medal too. I parked my car within 3 blocks from the start!?! When does that ever happen? (Just stay away from 'The Blue Goose' lot. I witnessed towing there...Boo!) Will definitely run this one again next year! My best race experience yet!
