Things appear to be running smoothly for the races this year. 5K did run out of certain sizes shirts but runners generally did not chose to contend with haggard volunteers. Some made a few comments which is fair. Signage was a bit lacking for the 5K registration and packet pick up. I believe there was only one directional sign and the registration area had nothing.
No Coach G.P. this year nor is Dick Beardsley hanging around. But Olympian and American women's marathon record holder Deena Kastor did head up the speaker series. I know nothing about the elite runners this year and made little effort to find out who was running. Being a father has made spare moments smaller.
Also the marathon has a few branded vehicles now in addition to the trailer.
