I did the Casper Marathon in 2010 and LOVED it. It is a small race made up of a lot of Marathon Maniacs and 50 Staters. This race treated us so good that when my three friends said they were going to go for 5 Marathon Maniac stars by doing three marathons in one week (starting with Casper), I thought it would be fun to go along for the ride (and the run).
We left Salt Lake City Saturday afternoon and made it to Casper, WY just in time to pick up our race packets and go to the pasta dinner. After a great dinner, Teota, Liz, Marsha and I hit the hay.
Maniacs at the start!
The same things I loved about this race in 2010, are the same things I loved about this race this year. Great course, ice at the aid stations (which was awesome as the temperature got to the mid 80's), amazing volunteers and organization, and the post race food is like nothing I have ever seen (pizza, fruit, sandwiches, cookies, beer and soda)! There were also a lot of fun people running!
