I do have one complaint about the event....the course was 13.5 miles instead of 13.1! To some this may not be a big deal, but with today's technology. There is no reason to be this far off and there was plenty of areas on the course that could have been shortened. Other than that, I really don't have any complaints.
I ran a decent time at 1:57 for the half and for the 13.5 I was at 2:01. I don't believe I PR'd, but it was good practice and I learned a few things as I hit the 40 days till the Cleveland Marathon. I also learned that I must not look like I am having fun while running as an elder runner made a point to tell me this is for fun at mile 12.
Also, big congrats go to Ryan McCartney (CLEcraftbeerun) and Jessica Bagwell (@mojamala2). They were rockstars and had outstanding races.
