Thanks for another great race!Here's what athletes are saying...
"When you get in the office tomorrow and start looking through your lost-and-found box, you may find a little bit of my heart and soul because I definitely left a little bit of each behind...still moved by so many components of this event." - Natasha Wieschenberg
"Echoing the other comments on this page, thank you so much for a great race. From your pre race communication to the day of organization, everything was top notch. I absolutely loved the bike course and PRd for sure. The volunteers were all so nice and I absolutely enjoyed myself. While seeing the finish line was great, the best moment for sure was the National Anthem with the sun rising with the Washington Monument. I can't think of any other place to celebrate the lives of those lost on 9/11. Thank you to your entire staff. Can't wait to see the pics." - Amy Mann
"This was a great race and really well organized. The volunteers were awesome, and all of the supporters who were cheering along the route definitely helped to pump us up! Thanks, and I can't wait for next year!" - David Iselin
