Jodie Bayardo's thoughts:

Oh how I loved these 13.1 miles!! I am lucky enough to be local to this race and boy am I thankful that I am! The expo is really pretty unremarkable. There are a few local vendors, volunteers and packet pickup are fast and efficient, but manage your expectations going in- it's not big! The race shirt was a long sleeve tech shirt that was decently well made and cute- I can see myself wearing it again. You also get a running hat which is AWESOME because it was raining on race day!! Typically, this race would be warm and humid but we just so happened to get rain- I will happily take that over heat!!
There are so many really nice things about this race. The course is BEAUTIFUL and almost entirely flat except for 2 bridges- and they are a doozy! The race was pretty well attended with runners of varying speeds. Pace groups were provided and seemed to be accurate. There is not much crowd support, but water stops are plentiful and the volunteers are extremely encouraging and energetic. There are also bands throughout the course. The other runners are friendly. It's an awesome race. I really love it. The finish line is well stocked. This year we had multiple free beer options, waffles, pizza, and pasta. Lots of food options and the medal is super cute and good quality. Race photos are available free of charge after the race and are easy to locate.
On the whole, I recommend this race to runners of all levels. The city is hospitable and welcoming and the race management is top notch! A flat, Fast, Fun course in Sunny Florida!
