Definitely a highlight so far this year

Standing in the middle of nowhere at 5 AM with almost 2000 other runners, watching the sky turn pink and waiting for this run to start, was definitely a highlight so far this year. Hope to do it again.

Thanks, Vacation Races, for an awesome race. If you can lose the brief deluge at the start, you'll have a perfect race!
