Jim 's thoughts:

This was a nice race. The course was changed for this year so that the worse hills were earlier on, from about 2.5 to about 5 or so. The weather this year made things tough with a pretty stiff wind in our face the last 3 miles or so. Due to the rain, the course finish had to be changed from finishing inside Region's Field, where the Birmingham Barons play, running the warning track and finishing by home plate to finishing up on the concourse. Still a pretty nice finish with the jumbo screen showing the finishers. Food afterwards was ok, but there was free craft beer being served, which was nice. The awards were sweet (see my profile pic). The course is deceiving in that it is tougher than it looks.
