    My first 50K and my friend’s first Marathon……the race was poorly put on. Website says water stations every mile, at pkt pu they said every 2 miles……truth be told every 3 -4 miles and water station consisted of a case of water setting on the ground in the sun for you to take one. I went several miles in 80 degree temps with no fluids. NOT SAFE! And the finish line – no drinks, no food and oh by the way your medal is on the table go grab it. Thoroughly disappointed.

    Seems like flat should equal easy, but not here. To be fair, I had been on the road with the band for 2 days with little sleep, drove through the night on the third day, and got out and started running; not ideal prep for a run. Still the wind made this course a beast, a 7 mile beast (bridge), with a little 5 mile beast (bridge) on it’s back…that we had to cross twice. I didn’t see anyone running who wasn’t struggling, so don’t get caught off guard. It’s flat, but not fast.

    Ha ha, yeah, I'm guessing yours isn't the pre-race plan approved by Runner's World. That said I feel your pain, since wind is my least favorite arrow in Mother Nature's quiver. The (head)winds at Big Sur reached 40 mph last year, and I could feel myself swaying back and forth on the course. At least Running for the Bay sounds flat, there's something to be said for not having to climb hills while the wind is blasting you in the face. Thanks, Keith! LESS
