Beautiful and fun (about: 2003)|
M. F. from Los Angeles (10/20/03)
This was my first marathon, and I loved it! The course was absolutely beautiful! Because it was an out-and-back course, I knew what to anticipate during the second half of the run, so I was mentally prepared for whatever showed up. The spectators are sparse, but what do you expect from trail? The water stations were staffed w/ the best volunteers ever--everyone (volunteers and runners) was so nice. Be prepared for hills, but the uphill is worth it. You'll see the most incredible views! And remember--what goes up must go down--all those uphills will be downhills when you return and vice versa. I'll definitely return next year!
