Describe your race day.
Bus loading was easy and organized, plenty of parking was available, Start line was a little crowded but fine, once I got my bearings, The announcer was trying to help us, Loved the music but sad it stopped before the race started. The race was gorgeous, it was fun to look at the beautiful trees, colors, river and small water falls, The course was steep, but I was prepared for it. The out and back was long, but doable, and the finish line was very well organized with lots of good choices for food, pictures, music, water, and cool sports towels. I loved the official result cards. The only negative for me on the course was I wasn't prepared for how cold it would be. My arms and hands went numb, luckily someone leant me their arm sleeve and that helped me warm up a lot.
