I went ahead and did a 5 mile race this morning, a majority of it was a trail run so at least it was in the shade. Anyway, for the first time, I was unable to finish a race without walking, I had to take a few breaks sometime after the 3 mile mark. Anyway, this was definitely a poorly organized race in my opinion. No mile markers to let you know where you were at and, considering the weather, I thought only having one water station on the course was a terrible choice. And even better, putting it at the four mile mark.
Nice charity idea, poor execution.
