Describe your race day.
I wish someone had warned me via the web site/registration that running downhill would cause severe blisters. I had to run 11 miles with blood soaked shoes and socks. It was excruciating the last 3 miles. I run 10 miles a day, up and down hills in Oregon, and NEVER experienced this before. Other than that, the volunteers were AMAZING, the runners and crowds were so uplifting and supportive, and it was an easy, cool, beautiful run (except for the foot pain). The last 3 miles I utterly despised. It felt like hitting a heat wall when I left the canyon.
