Fun little race. The 14-yr old son of a friend of mine is starting to run and wanted to do this one as his first race, so I went along. The course starts and ends at War Memorial Plaza in Baltimore and goes along the familiar Light Street/Key Highway route that most races in the Inner Harbor follow.
Funniest thing this day was surprising Arnat Vale on his race. They have a 5K followed up by a 10K, so after the 5K I'm standing around eating, drinking and chit-chatting when the 10K starts. I happen to notice a Mid-Md Tri Club jersey fly by and realize after a couple seconds that it's Arnat, so I yell to him "Go, Arnat!" and he practically breaks his neck looking around to see who yelled! Anyway, I had to split before the end of his race so didn't get a chance to tell him that I was his mystery cheerleader until later.
