- This was the marathon of the Dopey Challenge. I set the "coach" feature on Map my Run to pace my son and I at 12:30. He wanted to run the entire course. Based upon our 3 previous races this seemed like an achievable goal.
- There were 25,000+ participants at the marathon. Surprisingly, this was the easiest day to manage crowd congestion. It seemed that walkers and runners understood race etiquette so we rarely had to weave around slower individuals or groups.During the times that we got bottlenecked, my son and I just stayed where we were and eventually space opened up for us to regain our pace.
- My son finished running the entire course! We finished slightly under our goal pace. The biggest shock was how much extra mileage we ran since we really avoided weaving.
- It was a good 4 days to share and experience with my son. Happily, we will NEVER do this event again! It really is "dopey."
