Meesh 's thoughts:

This race was well-organized, from the expo and parking, to race morning and the abundant aid stations. Loved the long sleeve race shirt! It was large enough that someone like myself (back of the pack) did not feel alone at any point on the course. You get to run across the Trenton Makes bridge, which feels strange on your feet but is a fun experience. This race goes into PA for a minute, then back across into NJ. However, I was a bit sad that most of this race was on highways. There is an interlude where you go into a park (where there is a small hill) around mile 9, but then it is back to the highways. Unfortunately, even when in downtown Trenton at the beginning, there weren't many folks out cheering - and because of the race being mostly highway, there weren't many spectators in general. It didn't feel lonely because there were other racers around me, but I do love crowd support. The finish line is fun - inside the Trenton Thunder stadium! Was slightly disappointed that they ran out of pretzels for us slowski's in '14, so hopefully this has been remedied. The after party was a short walk away, but was fun! Good food and some indoor space. I would definitely complete this race again.
