I had never run the Bix before, but have always heard about it. Basically, it is a 7 mile run, mostly uphill.
It starts and ends in downtown Davenport. It was the coldest Bix in history (~50 degrees the morning of). For the end of July it was freezing!
I had mixed feelings about this race. I loved the hills and the crowd support. However, I did not like how all racers started at the same time.
I felt trapped most of the time, because there were so many runners I could not get around them. However, despite that I managed to finish in 58 minutes.
I did not manage to get any pictures of this race, sorry!
