Performance: Below average
Course: The course is relativly flat with the exception of a hill 3/4 of a mile from the finish. Well managed race. It was a memorial day event so there was plenty of motivation - carnations for all to place on a memorial for fallen Airman.
Keeping cool Average Drinking Just right
