   “Just wanted to say a heartfelt ‘thanks’ for all of your hard work on the Run Like the Wind!  This is one of my favorites and I always look forward to it, partly because it’s a fun course but especially because it is so well organized and supported.  You do a truly fantastic job.  Since I see many of the same people every year I’m sure everyone else feels the same way!  See you next year, and thank you again.”  – C

    “I want to compliment you and your volunteer team for putting on an awesome race!  I am from Denver and run quite a few races a year and I must say Run Like the Wind, has been one of my favorite races!  That was my first time visiting the town, the course was great (it was pretty tough, in a good way!), loved the Bluegrass Band, everything was great.  Thank you for a great experience, I put the 2014 race on my calendar.” – K
