This is a good way to get up on the weekend and get moving. It follows the basic Chicago 5K plan. The highlight of this was meeting Meb. The overall feeling was pretty fun, but the volunteers try incredibly hard to pump fun into an appetizer for the weekend.
I recommend this race only because it is a good test for weather conditions on Sunday and what else are you going to do? The heat tends to be pretty brutal and there is barely any music and a water station with luke warm Gatorade and water. The corrals for this were a bit confusing, either you were at the front and running elite speed or clumped in with run walkers.
Not a terrible experience, but not worth raving about either.
