10k women's record holder Stephanie Breeding raves, “I love this race!! The course was beautiful and challenging with the rolling hills. It was great to start and finish downtown where everyone was. It seemed like everyone knew everyone and people were so friendly they were like my best friends. The volunteers catered to us with water and cheers of encouragement!”
