Comments from runners:
"America the Beautiful" was written in the 1890s after a hike up Pike's Peak. For anybody doing his race and especially us flatlanders - you can see how the author was inspired. Beautiful day, beautiful course. I had some cramping issues the last four miles, but just about the time I'd feel bad, I'd simply look at the scenery and start grinning." T.S., Indianapolis (posted on Marathonguide.com)
"Just wanted to say thank you for doing such a great job with the race. I had a spectacular time and so enjoyed the scenery and people. Everything went beautifully:) Thanks, again, for all of your hard work and putting in an order for such a beautiful day. Also, the water sculpture at the park is a wonderful addition to the experience! Really helped to put my legs in it after the race!" S. Nies
