My wife, Sara and I were running the 4 mile course. We struggled against the wind. The wind was brutal! Thankfully, the rain only returned as a brief sprinkle. We made our way to the turnaround point and water stop. Several teenagers staffed the water station and encouraged us on. With the wind now at our backs, we seemed to fly down the beach. The sand was firm along the ocean shore and great to run on. There were only a couple of small water crossings.
As we finished, we entered the rows of flags and had our photo taken. The race director took our photo together after we finished. Everyone received a finisher medal this year and the first place male and female for each race received a larger medal. There was plenty of food and water and the race was to raise money for the North Lincoln Fire and Rescue Association. Hopefully, next year this race will grow. It was well-organized, for a good cause, a best of all, it was on the beach!
