Huge thanks to you and your wife for an amazing event! You and the team did such an amazing job, the venue was great, course was beautiful and I’m more than ready to sign up for next year. 

Thanks for cheering on the newbies! We may be slow, but crossing the finish line is just as amazing as being on the podium. Thanks again and great job.
