I competed as a team with my fiancé and my two friends, Brooke and Katie (Katie also did the Great Bay Half Marathon with me a while back!). We had to come up with a team costume, so we went with ‘guts contestants.’ (Loved that show as a kid!)
The one disappointing part about the race was the post-race breakfast. They listed on the website that we’d get a big breakfast (including cider donuts!) afterwards. We went to the breakfast right after the awards ceremony, and all that was left was bagel halves – no other food, and they’d also run out of cream cheese. And there was nothing to drink at the breakfast (aside from people who bought beer tickets) – so it’s kinda hard to get down a dry bagel with no water or juice or anything. But hopefully they improve on that for next year, because the rest of the experience was awesome!
Check out the video below (Terry wore a camera on his head!) with obstacles from the first half of the race. Unfortunately the camera cut off halfway, but this will show you how much fun a race like this is – and how non-graceful I am.
