    Once you leave the downtown area (after approximately 4 miles) you run the same section of the course on two different out and backs that has absolutely no scenery. During the second, further out and back, the half-marathoners are no longer running and there a very few marathoners so you will find yourself running alone. Was not mentally prepared for this challenge.

    It was a good race overall. Starting temp was around 28 with 14 mph winds, but the sun was out. The toughest part of the race is early, between miles 2 and 4. After that, it gets easier until around mile 12 when you climb a bridge. I went with the 1:30 pace group and they were really good, but I didn’t hear the same about some of the other pacers. Medals and shirts were really nice, but I didn’t see a lot of post race food options. Race support was rather sparse as well. The course was confusing at times and the turn around point was rather subtle and anti-climatic. I was glad I was with the pace group during those parts. The dead possum at mile 10 was rather amusing and gross at the same time. Overall, it was a good race and I enjoyed the parts of the course that go through the city.

    -Part city streets, part paved trail
    -Easy parking, although packet pickup was sort of a pain
    -Be prepared for Nashville traffic, not sure what’s broken there, but we have an issue and have long slow waits every time we go through
    -Aid stations were good, directions were good, and volunteers were friendly

    I really liked this marathon, but mainly because I had a very good run. It did have some hills at the beginning, but flattened out in the second half of the 13.1 mile loop that we did twice. Very little in the way of crowd support, but there was a lot of beer and pizza at the finish. There were also free massages at the finish, but the lines were kind of long. Not much in the way of scenery except for the usual sights of Nashville. I was kind of disappointed that there wasn’t any music along the route, not even street musicians. I would give it a grade of B.
