The race was perfect. Well, let me say perfect for a June race. June is warm for racing. One of my favorite parts of the Moon Pie 10 miler is the race directors notation right on the entry form. It reads.....
"THIS COURSE WILL BE RUN IN THE MIDDLE OF JUNE. IT WILL BE HOT! IT WILL BE HILLY! IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED, DO NOT RUN THIS RACE."
To be honest, after running the Blue Ridge VA Marathon in April, the notation about the TN hills no longer scared me. This race was not a "goal race". This race was about enjoying the day with friends, and to serve as a test of my fitness in the early weeks of my marathon training for the Top of Utah. Success!

My only regret from the trip was not having a camera on the course. I love a scenic, no-hoopla race (small) and this was it. This race had around 800 runners with few cheering fans on the course, but the landscape was truly amazing for someone who lives in the piney woods. Thanks Terri, Vicki, Audrey, and Jennifer! Another race weekend to remember.
