I did this event last year and I can tell you it was one of the worst runs/races for me ever... personally. Not the course itself but the heat and I was so sure this race would be a piece of cake and it wasn't. It was also wickedly hot! This year we were about 5 degrees cooler which made a huge difference. I also didn't set high expectations but to finish, and not feel like crap while doing it! I also was damned and determined to run the ENTIRE golf course it was hard but I did it!!!!!
Because this year we hoped to set a Guinness Record we had to all pick up our own bibs and sign for them as part of the process to verify this was a legitimate record. As you can see its quite the lineup.
Surprisingly amongst all the people there it didn't take me long to find my Taekwon-Do buddies who were dong the run as well! Last year Jason and I ran (and his brother in law Vince who is not in TKD). Mark our running guru at the Dojang joined us as well this year! Mark is a great motivator and helped me through the final kilometers of my half marathon last year.
This fellow was in full gear competing in the Warrior Class which included running with sword and shield and challenges on the golf course!
