I had such a wonderful time, it was absolutely the most beautiful race I have ever run.  When I was finished with the half, I wanted to keep going, just so I could see more of the City!  The views were spectacular, the whole event was very well organized and the people were great…I have never had so much conversation during a race before!  I even enjoyed the hills!  I will definitely be back next year, I can't wait!"
