Shawna 's thoughts:

Race gets better each year with this being the best so far. Course was clear of ice and snow and clearly marked. Would definitely run again. Plenty of packet pick up days and times. Definitely need to figure out something for gear check next year. The entrance created quite a disaster for those that picked up bags a little later. Similar situation with bathrooms, although functioning toilets trumps porto pots. Aid station volunteers were great but some were not prepared for runners with both water and Gatorade. The post race snacks were nice but I definitely would've preferred water and fruit over a granola bar. Also, wish the start and finish were reversed. Would much rather finish closer to gear check instead of being crowded at the start. Start corals were packed and couldn't get in until after race start. Miles were clearly marked although not sure about accuracy. Liked the hat and gloves SWAG instead of regular tshirt. Overall enjoyed this year and will more than likely continue to run.
