Irina 's thoughts:

I am a single mom and a full time teacher. My personal goal(set in February 2015) is to run in every state and Washington DC. PA was state number 2. I chose this race for many reasons: it's local, many of my close friends and two running clubs were racing in it, and I wanted my 4 year old daughter to run the last .25 of a mile with me. The race was a success for me personally. I finished in a decent 2:06 time and got to cross the finish line with my daughter over my shoulders. It was definitely the most empowering moment for me as a mother and as a runner.
The expo the day before was great. Many vendors, great products, and the race giveaways. I got some rock tape to support my knee that has been giving me trouble and it worked wonders.
I chose to start with 9:30 pace. I may try a 9:00 next time. The courses was easy and exceptionally well managed. Frequent aid stations had water and Gatorade. I didn't see any energy gu:((
Great views, flat course with an exception of two hills. Food snacks and water at the end were greatly appreciated.
I'd do this one again.
