Pre-race routine:

clif bar and water; drove downtown and walked to the shuttle bus- crazy line. Got off the shuttle, we were funneled onto a sidewalk and watched the race start from there. Didn't get a port-a-potty at all.,
Event warmup:

a little jog downtown; otherwise not much.

Event comments:

Getting to the race was pretty frustrating- I feel like it would help to have a couple of shuttle pick-up points downtown. The shuttles were well-organized, just so many people!
The after-race was a nightmare. It was raining (not their fault!) but it was almost impossible to get through to the fruit, and I never did find a port-a-potty. I feel like they could have a better way to funnel everyone away from the finish chute and towards the food- and there should be taller signs, and maybe have each table have fruit and water instead of 10 tables of cookies?
