Well people ask was the race fun and I would answer, " more like an experience." If we continued the pace we were all going either we would blow away or continue to be hospitalized for physical ( Hunter and Tyler) or emotional craziness. It was a great race and everyone I think had fun. Alan DID AWESOME and GREATLY improved. I will never forget the first time swimming in the Hudson, Biking West side HWY, and running the hills of central park.
