Awesome run in the snow (about: 2013)|

Ran the inaugural race here this year in the midst of snow storm. Despite a foot of snow on a 4.4-mile bike path loop (the loop is a nod to Bill Murray's recurring day in the movie), the race was a great deal of fun. Although only 4.4 miles, each loop had three aid stations with water & gatorade, as well as pretzels and pickles/pickle juice at the starting line aid station. Great swag as we received a nice hoodie and a very large medal, both with the race logo. Nice chili, cookies, and beer afterwards. The same race director as the Grand Rapids Marathon meant all the bases were covered. The tough conditions actually enhanced the race. All in all, a fun run that just happened to be a marathon.
