Just want to tell you how much i enjoyed the race. I've run in several marathons and consider this the best organized from start to finish. I did set a new personal best and my son-in-law qualified for The Boston Marathon. A Big Thank You to all the volunteers and of coarse to you for all the hard work it takes to make this a success. I live in Sugar Land Texas just to let you know this was no small trip. Again THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL.

Sincerely, James
P.S. The after race celebrations were excellent.
