Also, we discussed how I am going to need several volunteers to make sure everything goes smoothly. Also, we decided I need to get permission from city hall. Commentary: Overall, this experience made me realize that a road course will be easier to do because you do not have to worry about roots and people tripping this way. I realized for the 1st time that there is going to be much more to this project that I thought.

We also discussed that I would need to have fruit snacks and bananas and water for recovery after the race for the runners. Commentary: I’m pretty positive that the course is correct, but just to be sure, I took my coach’s suggestion and tripped it. Turns out, it was exactly the distance I thought it would be.
