Trail Note: We ran, we ran so far a-wayayay...

I've been meaning to post about the Nike Run Hit Wonder all week and haven't been able to make much progress, so here are the basics:

  • Traffic between Seattle and Portland bites
  • While having race numbers imprinted on dry-weave race shirts is a great concept, it requires tight coordination so that people get the right size - and not by accident
  • After fighting runner traffic and huffing and puffing for the first mile, Jeff and I decided to take it easy, enjoy the music and the surroundings, and not try to "race" the 10K run
  • Resulting chip time: 50:24; not one of my better 10K's
  • There were one hit wonder bands at every mile of the route, and they did not sing their one hit wonders over and over again. Disappointing, because hearing "I ran" by Flock of Seagulls who were at mile 5 would have really helped me get up that last hill
  • Having a tasty beer at 9:30 in the morning is a guilty pleasure, so be sure to have ID and cash with you at all times in case you chance upon a beer garden
