The race was fun as usual. However, I was terribly upset to witness a young child (approx. 8 yrs) run full tilt into a parking meter at the beginning of the race. The poor kid was knocked to the ground and was really hurt. He couldn't see it coming because of the crowd and his height. I have seen this type of accident happen several times in the years I have participated in the race. I was wondering if it would be feasible for the race orginizers to put something like bike flags on the meters in the first 1/2 mile or so of the race so people could see where they are. Just a thought.
