These 2 miles weren’t exactly difficult especially since they were so close to the water with stunning views the entire time! They were; however, a bit remote (I know how stupid that sounds). This was the part of the route where the turn around occurred and where the HUGE amount of participants (that had brought so much energy) started to dwindle (I love me some crowd energy as you know). I don’t want to make it sound like I struggled or that I didn’t like this section, but it kind of felt as if we (me and a couple hundred of my new closest running buddies) were out there alone (alone from race officials not alone from other participants). . . like if we would have had a medical emergency that it might have taken SEVERAL minutes for help to arrive. Maybe just my perception, but it felt rather isolated. Oh well, it was beautiful. Here are some of the photos “C” took - double click on any of them to begin daydreaming!

(right) Can you see the 3 men dressed in tan just ahead of the white shirted person? They were HILARIOUS – these guys were dressed up as Reno 911 cops – OMG – they posed for HUNDREDS of pictures before the race and they were just a hoot!!!!! A+ group costume!!!
