Frank Nardomarino's thoughts:

I absolutely love this race! Where do I even begin?!

Run along the north shore from military base to military base? Yes!

Support our troops? Yes!

Scenic route? Yes!

Top notch swag? Yes!

Unbelievably inspiring finish line? YES!

I was absolutely humbled by the support from volunteers and military personnel entering the base. Everything from parking and shuttling to aid stations was just perfect.

If you have never done this race then you are truly missing out. Just when you feel fatigued and question going on, you enter Great Lakes Naval Base to feel an indescribable feeling. The last two miles are tough but with the unbelievable support and cheering from the military personnel, you get your second wind.

Hero Hill?!?! Holy leg killer...

Thank you so much to the military volunteers for running it with us and pushing us up!

I am still in awe of such a beautiful finish line!
