This is a deceptively challenging course; the elevation map lures you into thinking it is primarily downhill, but there are plenty of long slow climbs that are fairly brutal. Really great course support, really enthusiastic crowds along the way, and really unique scenery make it a fun course — it’s basically a sightseeing tour of LA. Not sure why, but the course seems to be a quarter mile longer than it should be. Maybe just GPS/elevation induced errors, but I carefully started and stopped my watch (Garmin) on the start and finish pads and it reads 26.46 miles. All during the race the mile markers were consistently 0.25 miles beyond where my watch was indicating the mile transitions. Everyone I’ve talked to had the same problem — Garmin, Fitbit, whatever. That sort of thing can mess with your head late in the race, so just beware.
