    I would have likely done very well on this course in 2012 when I was in good running shape. The course was mostly flat – a few small inclines, but nothing strenuous. It was a very scenic run along Mission Bay and Fiesta Island. The course was the road that went out to the island and later sidewalks along the walking trails. It was overcast and sprinkling at the beginning, but never amounted to a steady rain. Temperatures were pleasant and made for good running.

    I felt like I was running well – better than my previous two weekends – through mile 9. Then we passed the finish line and kept going about 2 miles, then turned around. A combination of passing the finish line and some mile makers that I thought were off caused me to slow down and not finish as strong in that final 4 miles. The distance between the mile 7 and 8 marker definitely felt short, but 8 to 9 was very long. I think the distance between mile 10 and 11 was also short. In the end I finished and talked to a couple of ladies afterward. One said according to her device it was 13.4 miles. I cannot confirm that as I did not use anything to track progress. But even still, it was enjoyable.

    The medal was very nice – a mardi gras mask that was very colorful. A volunteer gave me a couple of beads and I kept with the medal. I would definitely do it again and hopefully in better shape and faster running times.
