  • Comments: What a shambles. I'm glad that it was clear already before race day that the organization was a mess. This allowed us to take it easy, and to appreciate all of the problems as quaint or amusing, rather than as annoying. So it was more of a hard workout in a charming part of the world. I guess I should have mentioned that earlier -- the Forest of Dean is a really pretty area, and so the entire route was rather attractive. Not a bad venue for a fast training workout. To the organizers' credit, they seemed to acknowledge that things hadn't gone entirely well, and so they said that they would offer participants in this year's race a free entry to next year's race. Whether anybody will take them up on the offer, I'm not so sure.
