If I weren't injured, I would be back this year! (about: 2004)|

11-50 previous marathons
| 1 Miracle Match Marathon
One of the most scenic Texas marathons besides those done on trails. Through the Baylor University campus, across the Lake Waco dam, and through the biggest municipal park in Texas (as well as one of the prettiest), the course was easy & mostly flat until the last 6 miles or so and then WATCH OUT! I recommended that they reverse the course for 2005. Electrolytes were scarce, but they figured that out near the end of the race and started handing out bottles of Gatorade to the runners from their vehicles. This was the first year and considering all that, they did a great job. Sponsored in part by M&M Mars -- Marathon Bars at every aid station! Attendance was scant since it's early in the season and it was a first-year event.
