disappointed (about: 2001)|
A Runner from Texas (1/5/02)
This race was messed up from the start. No potties were available at the start. You had to walk to the local hotel or convenient store to use the bathroom. There also were no bathrooms available along the course. Men had the convenience of findig the nearest tree or side of a building. For women this was not so easy. There were not even any stores or restaurants along the course where maybe you could use that bathroom. I don't know about you but with all the intake you need to run that far, and the amount of time it takes to run, I need to use the restroom. A good deal of the course was on a brick road. I think 26.2 miles is enough pounding without running on a brick surface. The only fan support came from the people at the aid stations, which had plenty of water. That is about the only good thing I can say about it. I am thankful I only did the half-marathon that day. Oh yeah, it is now 3 months later, and I still have not heard the results.
