Bridget Gaug's thoughts:

I ran the 5K race and really enjoyed the whole thing from start to finish.

Packet Pickup: Was easy and small. I happened to pick the exact time that the kids' races started. So there were lots of kids all hyped up. I would make sure not to do this next time just for my own sake. It was super fast and I loved how cozy and hometown it felt.

Race Day: I chose to walk to the start line because I was unsure about parking. But once I got there I saw that I had nothing to fear. Lots of parking and everything was very well organized. The half and the full started first followed by the 5K, and then the 10K. It was nice to be a smaller group and not all squished together.

The Course: It followed a river path which is my favorite thing to run on. It was quiet but pretty and was very FLAT. So flat my Fibit said I hadn't reached my goal for flights of stairs. This would be a great race for a BQ or PR.

I finished this race by coming in 2nd in my age and my husband PR'ing and coming in 3rd in his age!

The post race was amazing. I didn't get to stick around for much since there was a long drive ahead but I was able to get some snacks and take some great pictures.
