Meghan 's thoughts:

I was supposed to run the 1/2 marathon but was unable to because of an injury. I heard WONDERFUL things about the 1/2 course and was super bummed that I missed out, but I am signed up for the 1/2 in 2015 :)

I ran/walked the 5k with some friends and had a great time. I loved that the start line was right by Lake Eola park so you could enjoy the expo and spend time with friends in the park. There was plenty of room to move around and lots of places to meet up with people or just relax. One of my favorite things was sitting in the grass near the PR bell and watching people ring it. It is one of the best parts of Best Damn Race!

As with BDR in Safety Harbor everything ran smoothly! I volunteered at Packet Pickup on Friday afternoon/evening. Packet pickup started on Friday at noon and ran until 7 pm. This gave folks a chance to pick up their packets on their lunch break or after work. We had more than enough volunteers to be able to help out folks in a timely fashion. With the race being downtown I think some people just opted to wait until race morning to pick up their packets. Thankfully there was gear check on race day so you didn't have to run your stuff back to the car.
