This year was my very first year running Bloomsday--it was GREAT--
with the exception of all the walkers! I, too, signed up for the
time I realistically wanted to run (green wave) but was
unable to even come close to my goal time! It was dangerous
at the start with the walls upon walls of walkers, not paying attention
to the runners behind them! Also, there were tons of people that started
in my wave that didn't even have the same color bib! Maybe the race officials
should enforce the rules of colored tags! And (listen to me rant and rave. . .
you'd think that I HATED this race. . .)I was under the impression that Bloomsday
was a FUN RUN--meaning that one runs it for FUN! I can't count how many times
I was pushed and tripped at the starting line and in the first mile. I wish
people would just relax and realize that in a race that big, pushing and shoving
is dangerous, not to mention immature!
