Jamie 's thoughts:

I had high hopes coming into this race but quickly shattered as the weekend happened.

Expo: It was at the western complex and very small. Not much in vendors and some of the volunteers were a little unfriendly. When asked if I could change corrals, I was quickly told no without explanation.
Swag: The sweatshirt is a great touch and I still use it today. If the rest of my experience wasn't so clouded, I would do the 5K just for the sweatshirt.
Race day/course: The 15K started after the 5K which didn't make much sense to me. It limited the time out on the course. It seems as if it should have been the other way around. The course was okay but I have done several races in the city and have seen the same scenery. The hill around mile 7 was a bit brutal towards the end.
Medal/Food: The medal is cool, not gonna lie. But they are the same each year so the motivation to come back for the same medal is not worth it. I like races who change up their medals from year to year. The Hot Chocolate cup was filled to the brim of food, most of which I shared with those who cheered me on. Thankfully I can use the cup for my pencil holder at work.

Overall: I would not do this race again. I was not impressed with the course nor the folks who worked the race. I will stick with RNR Denver for my October race.
