Jen 's thoughts:

this was my 2nd half marathon i did in 2012. i didn't train as hard as planned, but i did end up running a PR for me.
the expo is small. maybe 5 vendors. i recommend bringing with you all your gu, headbands, fluid belt, and so on (whatev you run with).
the course is mostly flat, no major hills. the first 8 miles roughly are run through neighborhoods. borring for me, so i just looked around for ideas on curb appeal for my own house. after that you start making your way to the boardwalk and BAM there's the ocean. how beautiful! about mile 11 you're running on the boardwalk and staring out onto the beach. and you run that all the way to the finish line. majority of the crowds are there and they definitely do a great job cheering you on.
medal was beautiful, but i didn't stick around for the post race party. didn't look to bad though.
