Great energy, crowd, start. Plenty of portapotties. Loved running through Downtown, Lake Merritt, Produce District. Quite a few turns including some sharp ones but all good. Lovely downhill finish. The 1:50 pacer was solid and fun. BUT only got 12.85mi on my watch, this has been a problem with this race before. Very unfair for folks mistakenly thinking they ran a PR. On-course nutrition was one late stop with U-Can gel, which is a starch-based, slow-acting product not really appropriate for well into a half-marathon. And, I know it’s a matter of taste, but I did not care for this year’s medal or shirt design–I found the “graffiti” colors and style to be garish.
