This is a hard post to write because this race was kind of… boring.  The quick rundown so I can get to the fun stuff!


  • Great crowd support
  • Beer stop & the best cheerleaders (two years in a row!)
  • Familiar with the last two miles (last mile is downhill)
  • Great race shirts & different shirts for each distance


  • Boring course through Olympia neighborhoods
  • No medal (received dog tags & a coaster – save money on the coaster & go for the medal)

I can’t imagine running this race again.  It is run well but once you run the course, you are only going back for a course PR.
