This was a race that had to pivot to a virtual race and they ROCKED it. Tons of interaction from their social media and awesome swag. Not only do you get a tech tee and medal but also a bobble head and Lou Seal gaiter. Plus you can do one or all of the challenges for even more bling. I would absolutely recommend to a friend!!!

I was so excited for this race! I ran the first DC Wonder Woman Run as a BibRave Pro in 2018. It was a cold year that year and I ended up on a treadmill. I must just have bad weather luck with this race haha. This year it started raining, I thought it had past but then after about a mile I was getting rained on! Lucky for me I found a way to make it fun!

I was happy with my effort with this race but let’s be clear, I ran this for the SWAG! (If you have been following me, this is why I run races hahahaha). And I can tell you from running this race twice, they have the best SWAG.

Race day was BEAUTIFUL and I was so excited to run with Lindsey. She made this one of my favorite race days ever.

The aid stations were awesome, they were stocked with both water and sports drinks and as ALWAYS, Kansas City is so welcoming to runners. The hills did not disappoint. They were challenging but completely manageable and we had a blast, chatting and running.

After we got our medals, cool towels, and snacks, we headed over to the pancake stations! Seriously finishing a race with pancakes, whipped cream, and strawberries! It was awesome, my hubby snagged that post race beer and hot dogs as his payment for being the best photographer ever.
Him and I spent the rest of the day playing in Kansas City and just enjoying the party! We will be heading back to this race for sure! I would suggest it for anyone wanting a fun race, that is well run!

This was a great race for me! I went down on Friday, and the race hotel let us check in 4 hours early, so that we could park and put our bags away. Speaking of the hotel, it also had a noon check out, so I was able to take a shower before we left town on Saturday.
Friday, we headed to the expo that had tons of great vendors, including a vendor that made custom finishers shirts. It was a nice touch, if you wanted something extra to remember the weekend by. At packet pick up, they issued numbers as they went, so I was able to pick up my friends packet and mine in under 5 minutes.
Saturday morning, we got up early and headed down. The race hotel was about a block from the start and was so convenient. They had tons of bathrooms and the race got started in a timely manner.
The crowd at this race is amazing, tons of cheering, and community involvement. They also had great aid stations, and many of them. The course was well marked and you knew which direction to head for your distance. I was thrilled at one of the last 13.1 aid stations, they had gummy bears and all the way to the end were volunteers with candy.
The hills! I don't ever look at elevation maps because it sycs me out. There were some monster hills but it had an amazing downhill finish, which helped me. I came away with a half marathon PR!
The party at the finish line was awesome, you could make a tie dye shirt with Aftershokz, drink a beer, eat some BBQ and listen to great music.
I would 100% suggest this race to anyone looking for a fun and challenging street race.

This was not my favorite race, I will say that a lot of that stems from the fact that the very first color station blasted my right in my face and ear. This meant that I had to find a clean cloth from a police officer, to keep the color from going into my eyes/contacts.

So we will start with parking. This was a downtown Omaha event, which means parking is limited. It was $8 for parking at the event. I opted to park in free parking about a mile away, which wasn't a huge deal for me since I needed the miles for training, but would not have been convenient, if I had brought my daughter.

The race swag was great, I got a nice shirt, a great medal and at the end of the race, I got 2 things of Dr. Teals bath salts. The course was also fine for what it was, it isn't the prettiest parts of downtown, but it was also less than 3 miles. The worst part for me was how short the race was from an actual 5k. This bothered me, even though it wasn't a chipped race.

The organization could have been better, they didn't announce for people to line up and there was no organization to the starting process.

Needless to say this was the first and last time that I will run this race.
