    I undertrained for this race… that being said, There was a snafu with getting runners via bus to the Battleship for the start due to the ferry being out of commission the year I was there. They started late to make sure people were all there, which was very nice of them. The course was beautiful going over the water multiple times and through a residential area and park.
    I carry my own water, so the aid stations weren’t used by me.

    This was my very first half marathon, and I don’t have fond memories of it. It was in November, and it was 81 at the start (8 am). It was so hot and humid, which made running way harder, and your first half marathon is already mentally challenging as it is. I was a much slower runner then (11:30ish pace) but still sort of middle-of-the-pack because there were a lot of walkers, and by the time I got to some of the aid stations, they were out of water cups. They still had water, just no cups. Because it was so hot and humid, the faster runners had taken multiple cups I guess, and they ran out. There were 2 aid stations in a row that were out of cups, so we had to go something like 6 miles without water. It was brutal. The course has some pretty parts, but overall it’s just kind of fine. Maybe I’m biased now because I’ve run so many pretty half marathons since then, but if you’re in the Wilmington area, I think the Wrightsville Beach Half Marathon is a better option.

    Three bridges will provide you the reality check but the scenery and the race production was top notch. The appreciation for the military folks was a nice touch.
    Ed Fore & Janice McSweeney deserve a lot of credit for their hard work and effort. I have enjoyed all of their races this year.
