Should Be Called Knoxhills Marathon (about: 2005)|
David Hurley from Roanoke, VA (3/21/05)

| 1 Knoxville Marathon
First of all, I would like to state that I thought the organization was very good. I could take all the hills except the one at mile 26. It was like a knife had been stuck in my back and now the last hill twisted the knife. I will have to admit after the hill, the finish was fantastic in the beautiful stadium of the Universtity of TN. Having run 41 marathons, I would rate Knoxhills as one of the most difficult. I ran it as a training run for Boston. As a result, if I do not die before April, Boston should be a piece of cake. The finisher shirt was a nice surprise. The post-marathon snacks were fine. I felt like Martha Stewart wearing the large chip on my ankle. To be honest, the only disappointment was the pasta dinner. I would not even rate it fair. Maybe Martha could give some tips on pasta dinners before next year's event. As a whole, I think it was a well run marathon. It was a great way to spend the first day of spring.
