Overall, race day was well organized with plenty of water/gatorade stations, and with one gu at about the 10.5 mile mark. One small gripe is that the race is actually about 13.4 miles (I tracked via GPS during my run and hugged every corner. I also confirmed the distance via map run). It's not a big deal, but they should adjust the times accordingly or fix start/end line.

The course itself is pretty nice. There are some hills, but they are gradual and with nothing too difficult depending on what you trained on.

The date of the half for 2013 was not 5/5, it was 5/12, which was mother's day. This was my biggest gripe, and may prevent me from running in future years. If they can change the weekend for 2014, I would definitely do it again next year.

Had a blast at the Cox 5k road race. I found it to be a very well run race. The mile splits were accurate and water stations well manned. Great job.
