    *Lovely, mostly flat, double-loop scenic marathon course.
    *Parking on race day was 1 mile from the start. Parking was plentiful, the marshals were efficient. Shuttles ran frequently and reliably. Very smooth.
    *Aid stations were plentiful.
    *There weren’t many spectators along the route; of course, that may have been due to the race-day rain, but my understanding is that this is somewhat typical. As one of the less-speedy marathoners, I found myself nearly alone for stretches in the second loop— no complaints about that, as it actually felt very peaceful and lovely to me.
    *The course was adequately marked.
    *Swag was a well-made tech shirt and one of the prettiest medals I’ve ever seen. Both among my favorites!
    *Every volunteer I encountered was absolutely amazing. Every single roadside volunteer met us runners with smiles, cheers, fuel, water, etc. in spite of the raw, rainy weather. The volunteers running registration & bib pickup, course marshals, finish line crew and all others were equally wonderful. They were a big part of why I loved this race so much.
    * I could not stay for the after party so can’t comment on that
    * overall a wonderful race. I would have loved to see an early start option for those of us marathoners who will likely finish close to the 5 hour time limit, but other than that I have only great things to say about this marathon.
