Jennifer Zenuch's thoughts:

There are so many great things about this race. The distance is fun (how often do you get to run a 12k!?) and fast. I love that it's on Veteran's Day weekend. The race prints special bibs out for Veterans so you can pick them out and thank them for their service. Seeing the battleship off in the distance and running up into the park is always motivating and inspiring!

- Easy to park at the start and they partner with two hotels that are directly at the race start
- US Veterans receive a special colored bib to celebrate their service.
- GREAT medal and race shirt. Always one of my favorites of the year.
- Running into the Battleship Memorial Park is so cool, and you get handed a little American Flag (usually by the Boy Scouts) as you enter the park.
- Great post race photo opportunities in front of the USS Alabama
- Tons of donuts and coffee post race.

- The lines can be long getting to the bus to take you back to the start where you parked/hotel.
- The course was re-routed this year so the last quarter mile was through some soft grass (due to other events on the same day). Hoping next year it's back on the pavement through the park.
- It can be difficult for loved ones to get into the park to park and meet you at the finish.
