    I had run the half my first year and enjoyed it. I had even gotten a PR on the flat half course. The Marathon expo is huge and the race flat and well organized. Why then was it such a killer? We had just started when it started the rain. The temperature dropped from 40 to 33 for the finish. There were only 26 miles of pouring freezing rain. I feel sorry for the RD, he can’t control the weather. No one dared to stay for the after party this year. When getting my medal they asked me if I wanted to step into the medical tent to warm up. I was shaking and my teeth were clattering. So happy the hotel was just steps away. Since I had done it once and enjoyed I may go back. I would tell you it was my second worst experience in running.

    The water stations were sparse but great race, good support and since I was super slow and last I had my own golf cart for support. I choose this race as my first half because it is a fast and flat course. I felt it was flat.

    Great course. Go for a PR! Flat and fast. Great for new runners who don’t want a difficult challenge, beyond the distance. I loved the race logo and finisher medal, one reason I chose to run it. Smaller size race, but well run and made to feel like a bigger event. And a bonus of a smaller race is: 1st place age group award!
