I first want to Thank Esther for her support this morning and arranging for me to start my race earlier than the rest of the runners. It was a much better run for me than last year run due to the mind game. When you are a slow runner and everyone has pass you than you begin to think what am I doing out here. To be with other runners the whole time helped me to stay focus this year. I was able to take 15 minutes off of my time last year. I do hope you think about letting slow runners start earlier next year. As long as I can start like that I do not mind doing the runs. I was good about staying off to the side for the fast runners.
I have to say the route is much nicer this year and hope it stays this way. Everyone did a wonderful job and you should be proud of putting on such a great race.
Thank You from the bottom of my heart
