Anybody done this race before? I'm in the Atlanta area and my wife and I are driving out for it. we love Savannah and a flat and fast course is something I cant ignore.

Anyone have any tidbits of information?

Ive done it both years. Decided on the half last year because the second half of the Marathon is not so great. Chatham Parkway is windy and like driving down I16 if your familiar. Its like an energy/time vacuum. You'd better be prepared to be in a mindset that it will look a hell of a lot farther than it really is. Otherwise its a fantastic race. The half is much more enjoyable though if racing for time the cobblestone in very small areas is a challenge so not a great PR race. Not trying to hate on the race at all, Its my home town and I love the race but like all races there are the plus and minus. Personally IMO, go with the half!!!

My husband and I am doing the full together, neither of us are trying to PR, just our twisted idea of going on a date and spending time together. I will be 11 weeks out from IM Lou and he will be 6 weeks out from Augusta 70.3. I did the half last year.

One tidbit of information I can give about this race are there are several turns so keep that in mind

I signed up for Ironman Frankfurt, next year July - and I am very excited about it. I originally planned to run my first Marathon in the middle of September, but am not sure if this is wise.

After you have established the Ironman goal, the most important factor outside of the training is which race to choose? What is your best sort of course, hilly, rolling, flat?
