Future running partner.
I got there about 30 minutes early for same day packet pick up. The line was out the door. Yes, I should have gotten in the night before but I certainly didn't expect the wait to be that long. There was only two or three people getting people processed and that was after I heard someone say they were getting more volunteers.
I also had pre-registered my daughters to run their kid races and we barely made it to the start of their races, which seemed to be put together as they walked the kids to the start.
They told the kids that when they finished they would get to see snakes? Never happened. And the kids didn't get anything (cost $5 to enter the race for them).
I did get water at the second stop but they were digging it out of the bottom. I was lucky.
But it was badly organized.
