This was the first 5k I convinced my husband to race with me on Thanksgiving 2011. Parking was tough. There were a lot of people in a very tight space. The start seemed a bit disorganized. It took a very long time to get to the starting line. It was a great course along the water, though. It was a little easier getting out of the area after the race. Overall, we had a good time and the course was great.
