Race Preview:
Location:  Berne, IN (a Swiss community)
City's population:  4,423 (9/09)
Last year's race field:  482 participants
Race Name:  Swiss Days 5K

What's great about this race:
1.  Extremely well organized - it's amazingly efficient!!!!  Kudos to the race director and the sponsoring entity who do such a GREAT job!
2.  TONS of spectators
3.  Since it's a Swiss town, there are hundreds of people ringing cow bells along the entire route
4.  "L" will be there (though, not with me - she's doing the race with her walking partner "D")
5.  So excited to be having a bloggy meet up with Bethany from When Two Worlds Crash

With my first (of 4) half marathons just 2 weeks away, tomorrow's 5K will not be an attempt at a PR - just nice and fun race!!!  Wish me luck!  Come back later this weekend for the recap!!!
