Aesthetics – is it a pretty course

It was a very pretty course. Arboretum was beautiful! I thing I shed a few tears when I passed the Japanese Garden. There was Japanese drum circle type of band, and they were AMAZING!!!

Difficulty – is it a tough course

No. I don’t think so. I’ve done Seattle HM (in November) and that one was hard

Organized and well run – did it feel like a well-oiled machine or were they flying by the seat of their pants?

It was

Competition – is there a strong field?

I personally didn’t pay attention on that since

Logistics – Does it require a special handshake, registration a year in advance, hotels all booked? Give us the low down on the nuts and bolts of making the race happen.

I don’t think so since I didn’t have to do much as far as registration. It was smooth sailing for me..
