Run with the Heroes RGV 5K
I think there might've been one mile marker. Since I have my watch, I don't worry about that too much, but it's always reassuring to seem them.
I enjoyed the route. It covered the city lake and downtown. There was Chick-Fil-A and free pizza. (I won a plush cow.)
I noticed there was some delay when handing out awards. I saw part of the crew huddled over a laptop and scribbling numbers down. Later, on Facebook, I learned a vehicle ran over the sensors and lost all the participant data.
Part of it was later recovered.
I usually don't stay long after I finish, but since I was volunteering, I got to see the raffle giveaway. I tried to get one of the freebies they were tossing at the crowd, but I never have much luck with those.
In the end, there wasn't really a reason to stay. The organizers had this down. They were packed up and ready to go. I look forward to next year's run.
