The only good thing about this race was watching the sunrise over the ocean before the race began. It went downhill from there.
The traffic getting to the race start was pretty bad, the lines for the porta-potties were long and the there was the course. At several points along the course, they sent you running through random parking lots to get the full 13.1 miles in. Then you hit almost 3 miles of running on the sand at just after mile 9. The hard packed sand, was not so hard by the time I got there and the soft sand getting too and from that part of the course was even worse.
There were plenty of aid stations along the course, but by the time I got to the end there were very limited food and beverage options left. I would have given anything for a banana or Gatorade, but only pizza, beer and water were left.
The medal was nice, but not worth it.
