like to run races of all types, distances, and locales.  And I will often write a 'race report' -- a journal of the events and moments of a race -- so that I can capture the good, the bad, and the memorable.  Maybe I have run a race that you are considering.  If so, feel free to read about my experience, check out the photos, and see the race from my perspective.  It might help you decide.
