It ended up being the best, most fun race I've ever done. Everything about it was hilarious and awesome. There were people dressed in Blerch costumes. The aid stations had couches and cake. I got more food at this race than any other race I've done.

Let there be cake: I ate a piece of cake mid race, because I could. It was awesome and delicious. Best aid station food ever! And then I had 2 more pieces of cake after the race.
The race was well organized. The marathon, half marathon, and 10k all started at different times. Packet pick up was easy and there was plenty to do while waiting for the race to start. The Oatmeal was signing books, there was a contest for who could eat a donut off a string without using their hands the fastest, and there were other booths set up with running gear. After the race, there was a spot to take a photo with a giant jar of Nutella.

The course was pretty and was easy to run on for the most part. It was in Carnation, Washington and started in a park surrounded by farmland. There were a few places where the gravel was a bit rough, but the course was mostly flat with a wide path.
Race photos were free, and we got a good amount of stuff in the race packet. Gummy snacks, a tshirt, a deck of Blerch themed cards, and Blerch stickers. I enjoyed the race so much that I signed up for next year as soon as registration opened the following week.
