Event comments:

There were a lot of negative reviews of this race from the four previous years, but the course was changed this year from 2x the half marathon course (mostly on narrow multi-use path) to a single time around a large loop that incorporated the path. Generally flat and fast. Woefully undersupported, though--only 14 aid stations not all of which had water and most of which did not have enough volunteers. Decent post-race expo and handsome medal (plus track jacket and bottle of wine to all runners).

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.

Glassy waters greeted the nearly 600 participants for the quarter-mile swim. The 15.5-bike ride followed a beautiful course around the lake with the 5k run winding through a quiet residential area
