Great half, awful full. (about: 2010)|

Sometimes marathon organizers should start small. The half marathon of the Mangrove Marathon was well organized and it was a very nice course, but after 13.1 everything went down hill. There was obviously a major organizational gaffe after 13.1 miles, because there were very few water stops and no gels, and just when you needed them most. I hope that a greater effort is made in the future to get more of the community and schools involved because there were really no spectators. It was too expensive for a first-time marathon, and it really wasn't worth it.
