Writing this 4 weeks after the race, so details are a bit hazy . . .

Weird start time -- 1:15, right before the St. Patrick's Day Parade (so they would only have to close the streets once, I guess). Was feeling fine that day, but hadn't been running much lately, so really just posted a crappy time. Very flat course, and very fast for most people. This is the worst 5K time I've posted since my first 5K last summer. Had been getting progressively faster until now. This is the race that spurred me to sign up with the Doug Mock speedwork program.

Afterparty moved from the Columbus Center in previous years to Powerplant Live this year. Huge mistake. Waaaaay too crowded and few amenities. I'd have to say if the afterparty is here again next year, I won't bother with this race.
