Traffic to get to the start of the race was crazy. Organizers recommended getting to the race at least an hour before race-start. That was good advice as the traffic was bad and even with that cushion I still only parked my car with 30 minutes to spare.
This was to be a fun run so to speak as I was running with my friend and "chief crew" member, Courtney. She was running her very first (and she claims last) half-marathon. The goal at the start was to run a 1:55 race.
