Kelly Tyler's thoughts:

Before race day even started, ram racing had already impressed me twice- first, the process of submitting a proof of time for corral placement was easy and quick. Second, when I needed two accounts merged so that my legacy status would be recognized, they quickly updated my accounts so they were combined.

When I arrived at the hotel that was hosting the expo, the signs were to spot, directing runners to the expo area. There were plenty of chocolatey snacks out, and the pickup process was super quick, I only had to show my ID.

The expo was lively, with vendors everywhere. There were inflatable hot chocolate props, and photo ops throughout the space. After picking up my race jacket (the give away for this event) I went by the legacy table and picked up my mug, legacy medal, and chocolate bar.

There were plenty of porter potties out on race morning, just a short walk from the start line.

The corrals were seeded based off of runner pace, which made for a smooth start with no major course crowding. The race started before the sun came up, and there were some beautiful views of the city as the sun rose.

The course had a lot of rolling hills, which kept the terrain dynamic. The aid stations all had water, nuun, and an extra treat (marshmallows, gummy bears, and of course, chocolate!).

As the finish line approached there were clear signs indicating the 15k and 5k finish lines. After the finish line runners were given their medal and a bottle of water, and then had a bit of a hike to get to the park where the after party was hosted.

The mugs full of treats are now recyclable, but are still filled with some great chocolate treats, including hit chocolate, fondue, and some dippers.
