For being my first marathon, I thought it was a great experience. There was a smaller turnout than expected but the scenery and the support that you got along the way was amazing! I especially liked it when the younger volunteers would cheer you on by name (because they had the information with your number and name in hand), I would also like to thank the Mead track team for being there at mile 14 right when I had hit my wall, they had doughnuts and gatorade! I wouldn't have finished without them. A couple of tough hills especially at mile 22, what we the locals call Doomsday hill (from the annual Bloomsday fun run). The scenery and adventure add a ton to this run. I absolutley encourage anyone to hit this one up...well worth it!!
