I thank you for another well planned day yesterday. All of your hard work, time and effort is so much appreciated. I know you are are caring women as was explained to me by a lady last year who was locked out of her car and you stayed until the situation was resolved. You even invited the 2 ladies to stay at your home. So thank you again.

Thanks to all who helped make the 2013 races great. I ran the ½ marathon and found the course very challenging. The combination of road, trails and cart paths made it interesting and never boring. Of course all the hills meant that if you weren't in great shape coming in you are feeling it tonight. Today's sun made the cool start a non factor. Very well organized. Met some great people and hope to return next year.
