Melissa Kahn's thoughts:

This is the third time I've done this race and the first time doing the 10k. The half marathon was very well organized in years past, and I expected similar experience for the 10k. The bussing was great -we showed up on time, got on our bus and were transported to the start, no problem.

There were seemingly clueless race volunteers (teenagers with megaphones) trying to guide the crowd towards the start line. The email we received earlier indicated there'd be heat lamps. None to be found anywhere. Strangers everywhere, huddled together to stay warm, that was all we had going for us.

They finally used the megaphones in enough people's ears that we all moved to the start line.

Race course is flat and nicely supported, as usual, by a few locals who come out to support their friends and family. Lots of friendly cops, lots of water stops and bathrooms.

Otherwise a great race. I'll do it again for sure, just probably will level back up to the half, if nothing else, for the heat lamps. :-)
