Just as bad as RD describes, maybe worse! (about: 2011)|

I just wanted to get TN checked off my list, and I was going to be in town while this one was going on, so I signed up. When you start getting emails from a race director (who calls himself The Sadist) suggesting you make sure your will is in order, you kinda know you're in trouble. He went on and on about the heat and all, but I wasn't prepared for the hills. How did he put in so many uphills, with so few downhills? Thankfully, we got cloud cover about one hour 40 minutes into the race. I think I heard the race director crying when it clouded up. 5 loops of uphills in the humidity. This run is for those who want to say they've done a hard one, not for someone who wants to PR. Awesome bib (customized to each runner!) and really fun medal. Glad I got mine, it was a struggle. Hard to rate it on stars since it is unlike any marathon I've done before. Are you tough enough?
