Tim 's thoughts:

WHAT WAS AWESOME ABOUT THIS RACE?

As I always alluded to, the course changes were great. It was great to actually go FROM the FORT TO the BASE. Ignore that I didn't throw the number two in there, but in all seriousness, that made it for me. Considering how much of the course was cut from the base, it made it seem like things were evened out. I'm sure that made Army officials happy that the general public got to see what they do on the North shore as well.
WHAT WASN'T AWESOME ABOUT THIS RACE?
The event program we all received said that the event would go until noon. I don't always stay until the bitter end of events because eventually I need to get some lunch and continue the rest of my day. However, look at this:

If Fort 2 Base had anything else going on other than sponsor tents and merch stands, why wouldn't you want to hang around a little bit. During the inaugural event, race organizers had a really great band playing. Runners don't always need beer or tailgate party for us to stick around, but we do like to mingle and hang around a little bit. We did get the feeling we had to be cleared out completely by 1 p.m. so the members of our Navy can get back to work, but something worth sticking around for other than supporting our fellow runners would be nice too.
