Team Ortho, who sponsers this race (and the one in Minneapolis) has the BEST swag! (Cause sometimes it's all about the shirt.) :)
Last year our race packet had a hooded thermal reflective pullover jacket and a thick, soft knit hat with the Monster logo. Finishers got a heavy metal medal that also serves as a nifty belt buckle. I registered early this year for October and got a black, nylonlogo hat to wear while training this summer.
The only thing I would have done differently last year is/ was to wear a costume. I thought it was going to be enough effort just to finish the race and opted not to. (It WAS humbling to get passed by Elmo and the Cookie Monster in full, hairy costumes, but oh, well.) :) Not sure what I'll be, put for sure it will still be light and comfortable. (One guy went as Jimmy Buffet and carried a half-full glass blender container with a margarita-like liquid in it!!) Yikes.
