This is a great late spring 'small' marathon. You have the opportunity to generate a little speed because you're not being blocked by masses of run/walkers who like to frequent the large US marathons I typically do in the fall. The course is pretty flat and you usually end up with a late tailwind along the lake. Canadians are better spectators than they are cheerleaders, but they can be trained (if you have the energy to encourage them to encourage you).
