This was my slowest marathon, but not at all because of the course. I did not pick up training right after Chicago.
The hardest part about this marathon despite my lack of long runs was running on concrete for 26.2 miles. Training for this if you are not a local I recommend running on as much concrete as possible. Other than the surface, overall this was a great marathon.
It was slightly humid for me since I was traveling from a snowy Virginia, but this is another thing you should expect if you are traveling to Houston. Concrete and humidity.
The crowd was there for most of the 26.2 miles. I was happy to see family on the course. This is a great marathon for spectators because there are several spots you can see your runner.
I recommend this marathon if you are looking for something flat, you enjoy a post race ice cream and beer, and you like race swag (who doesn't)!
