No on-site awards, no prize money has diluted the field - this used to be a pretty premiere 10k race. There are close to 7-8K people including the 5K.

Pain shows us how strong we are. After last weekend I am convinced of this. After 151 training hours of swimming, biking, and running, I flew to Sonoma County, California for the race.
