Awesome vibe, LOVED running the first 12 miles throughout the city and on the water. Really fast course in the beginning. Not the biggest fan of the second half as it was an out and back and on a very busy road. Great finish regardless under the arch way! Big party afterwards, really great time!

Was a nice and low key marathon. I say low key being there werent too many crowds. Some quick notes and highlights:
-Expo was well organized and easy to get in and out
-Before the race, the bonfires were key, but be aware that your clothes will smell like ash during the race
-First 7 miles were easy, miles 7-12 were TOUGH, but after that, its literally fast and downhill
-Mile 25 had washclothes which was great for the finish

Overall, fun race! Gatorade and Water and every mile marker. Number 19 in the books!

Weather: 75 in the beginning, low 60s to end… NICE!

Dont get me wrong, I did enjoy the run, the issue is that there were stretches where it wasnt scenic (running next to the highway) and it felt like it dragged out. The start line was well organized and the finish was a good party, but around mile 12-17, there wasnt much to enjoy. Regardless, had a fun time, loved the medal made out of glass!
