NOT flat, GREAT support, GOOD Start (about: 2005)|

Flat-yeah right-maybe if you are comparing it to the Adirondacks! I trained flat cause the course was advertised to be flat. I won't make that mistake again. Yes again. Despite the misadvertisement, busted-up roads on the course under construction, narrow passages w/two-way running traffic for all 3 races (1/2, relay, and full marathons) and too many absent mile markers.. I would do this again. After all this was their first marathon in a while. The support was phenominal (Albany could use a lesson from you)! The cheerful audience and helpful, enthusiastic volunteers made it all worth while. I will come better prepared for your hilly course next year.
