    This was a return to marathoning for me, after a long layoff due to injury. So I was mainly focused on finishing and having a decent race. There is not much of anything to do in Albany, other than the race. The race was pretty flat and fast and they had a nice post race party with plenty of beverages.

    My 6th and least favorite marathon. Little spectator support. Boring course. Hoping to BQ but 63 degrees at the start and almost 70 at the finish and very humid. Disappointed in the post race food. Only gatorade and oranges. No bananas, bagels, bananas, pizza. Marathon shirt is not comfortable and lettering is already coming off after about 3 washes. I would not recommend this marathon to anyone attempting to BQ despite what the website says.

    Very nice race- well supported along the course and mostly flat. Can be a little humid. The expo was small, but also saves a lot of steps the day before. Very friendly volunteers.

    If you want to get a PR/BQ, this is an ideal race. The weather at this time of year is not too hot but can get humid! It is a smaller race so if you rely on crowd support to get you through, you might want to find another race. The people that were there volunteering were incredible and genuinely excited for the runners. The expo was so-so and post race celebration was not the best. I would not run this race again, but recommend it to those who want to explore a new part of Georgia.

    When I crossed the finish line the first words out of my mouth as I stood hunched over with my hands on my knees was “God I hate marathons”. I do. I really, really do. But I also love them. I think because, using the words of first time marathoner and my friend Patrice, it never fails to serve up a nice big piece of humble pie at some point. 26.2 miles is a long freaking way and I don’t think running a marathon will ever be a walk in the park for me. I always have a point somewhere along the course where I regret the very poor life choice I made to run a marathon. But then I finish and there is really nothing like the feeling of finishing a marathon for me, probably because that distance is so difficult for me. I also really love seeing other people finish.

    This race is flat, somewhat scenic and is well organized. There are enough people to never feel alone and to have the buzz and excitement but not so many where you feel crowded or have to weave around others. The medal was a turtle which I of course appreciated. But the thing about flat is towards the end the same repetitive movement can get to be a bit much so be prepared for that. Overall I liked this race well enough to do once. It is not so exciting or so scenic as to want to repeat the feat. But if you live in the South and are on a mission to PR this is the race for you.
