Event comments:

Running was fun, weather was beautiful. Racers could bring their dogs so BOPers had to look out for poop and leashes. Some guy's dog stuck its nose in my crotch while I was running. Volunteers were so lackadaisical that it would've been more fun without them. Finishing area was a mob scene with hundreds of people crushed to together looking for a nonexistent water table. There was a 'food court' area with a loooong wait for food. So, after the kids run we left to eat. Swag =t-shirt. No finishing pins, medals or even a an energy bar
