It was fine, but a less well-organized race than I am used to. The post-race snacks were fairly cheap food and pretty sparse. And no bananas! That being said, the course was beautiful and I PRed! Also, cars were no trouble!

Details on the setup of the starting area are rather scarce. So, unless there is more information available at packet pickup tomorrow, let's plan on meeting near bag drop at 0700 (half marathon) and 0740 (5 miler). If there are multiple bag drop stations, find the one with the lowest bib numbers. That gives everyone 30 minutes prior to start to find the group and then the start line.

According to the race site: "The Metro will be opening at 6:00 a.m.; an hour earlier than the normally scheduled Sunday time. Take the orange or blue line to the Smithsonian station; the closest metro stop to the start and finish of the race."
