This race was something else. The weather made the experience more challenging that it could have been. Although the race started early -- 7:30am -- it was already 90 with a feels like of 97. That zapped my energy quickly.
Although the weather really took it out of me, the rest of the race was very positive. The course was easy and well marked/supported. There were ample aid stations, although I wish there would have been one more (due to the weather).
The other suggestion I would like to make to the organizers is maybe doing the course in reverse -- this would allow for more shade for the last 2-3 miles as that section is the most shaded portion.
Overall, it was a race I'll do again, despite the weather. I could see this being a PR course.
