“My first half marathon, and I had an amazing time! Despite the crazy weather, you pulled it all together and made it a great experience. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who came out to offer support along the route. Overall, the course had beautiful views, the after party was fun, and everyone-coordinators, volunteers, and other runners-were friendly and encouraging!”
