Loved, loved, loved this half marathon!!! The scenery was absolutely beautiful!!! The elevation picture really had me worried but the hills were nothing, which allowed me to enjoy the scenery even more. This race was organized amazingly well, definitely not their first rodeo!! Thank you so very much vacation races for giving me this opportunity to run in the Smokeyโ€™s!!!! Great memories for a lifetime!!!

What you really want is the medal

It was a loop course through the Gallatin National Forest which, for a non-trail runner, was challenging but very beautiful. There were plenty of aid stations well-stocked with wonderful volunteers and port-a-potties. They had a very nice snack box at the end and the volunteer fished out an extra cold chocolate milk for me.The shirt is best tech tee I've ever received, a beautiful hunter green with a classy design.But what you really want is the medal. That -ish is ridiculous!
