Race Report:

This race is aways fun, and the 1:15pm start is ideal for warmer themp and ability to sleep-in after we loose 1 hrs sleep from changing clocks for Daylight Savings time.

Logistically, somewhat challenging, as you need to find parking by 12 noon. Beaing a native "Balamorean", I know the street parking spots that are close to the finish line and only spend about $2.50!

Ran this race much faster last year, and my first "down-hill" mile was a disappointing 7:15 (last year 6:45).

mile 1 - 7:15
Mile 2 - 7:59
Mile 3 - 7:53
Mile .1 - 0:50

Finished in time to get into the Beer Corral, and have 4 beer, before leasving about 12:50. Stunned that there were a sea of bodies all the way back to the finish corral, just waiting to get in.

With the size this race / walker field, changes on the food/beer set-up needs to happen for next year.
