This was my first big-city race and I loved it! I'm grateful for the ability to stay with a friend who had run the race a few times, and with another friend who was running on this day too. Expo had tons of great swag you could buy, but not too many other vendors. On race morning we took the subway in, pretty easy, and walked through a lot of security to the start. Quick and easy to check a bag and and find my corral! Great course though the main sites of Philly, but very quiet for fans until about mid-way through the half. Water stations were often surprising on a sharp corner, so you might not know they're coming. Couple of steep hills, both up and down. Soft PRETZELS and more at the finish line!!!
