Cold, rainy, and a course with no fans (about: 2002)|
A Runner from Charlotte, NC (1/19/02)
Although I did set a PR, I was disappointed in the pont to point course. It goes from Davidson College to Queens College, about a 20 mile stretch of road that is mostly rural. The water stops were great, and the people there were encouraging, despite the constant rain. There was no gym or meeting place pointed out to those several thousand of us who were freezing after the race. One very positive--they served some great, hot chili at the finish. I would recommend keeping the race in town to see the sights and neighborhoods of a beautiful (when it's sunny!) city.
