There were more runners this year than last's. The first part of the course was new and had to run in some streets of Washington, IA. Running on the trail was the best part. You can feel the difference once we finish the trail and have to run on the street asphalt.
I was able to run faster this year than the previous ones. Very pleased with my time. However, the last mile was painful running uphill on the streets.
