why are we running such a chopped up course before leaving downtown to Shepard road. It sounds and looks confusion and I haven't even run it yet
The old route was far better, and they managed to get the distance right rather than turn runners around early more often than not.

Where to start? No early mile markers, hard to pace. Nice short course for great PR times hah!
Downtown course layout made no sense. Never before have I heard so many cars honking two blocked bridges with no rerouting? For once I actually felt (a bit) sorry for the vehicle traffic!
Water bottles on the course what were we thinking? What an environmental disaster - caps and bottles will be blowing around for years. I won't even mention the difficulty of opening while running with mittens on!
Water at the finish - in a shot glass?? Sorry I was hoping for more than a 2 ounce serving.
Finish 'goodies' - Wheaties with expiration OCT2010 (hello: poison control?)
Very lame mug design half my reason to run is for the (former?) mug with the BIG Color Winter Carnival logo. Should include a magnifying glass to read this one. Saving on screen ink print costs? Lots of upside potential here either fix it or revert to the old course and mug.
