    My first half marathon. I was 18 when I ran this, and actually I started a minute or two late. My back left knee ligament hurt all race because I undertrained. But it checked all the boxes of a big city race. Starts and finishes downtown, runs through a few scenic neighborhoods, plenty of water stations and music on speakers, cars rushing past you on a half-closed road. I think we ran around Uptown for the first five miles, then ventured into Myers Park between 5-10, before heading into the city the last three miles. Myers Park is one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Charlotte, so enjoy. Back in my day (2015) it was called the BB&T Corporate Cup. Only two finishers in my age group (about 1200 finishers total), so I stood on a podium at a postrace ceremony with some kid who had beat me by 40 minutes.
    *My ears were more sensitive back then, and my funniest memory is that some dude was CRANKING “Pour Some Sugar On Me” on a speaker at mile 11, so loud that I could feel it vibrating my ear drum. I actually ran faster, to get away from the deafeningly loud music!
