Dodie Mercer's thoughts:

Hands down this is the best half marathon I've ever ran!

I hit the expo up on Saturday and it was easy to get to with ample parking. There were plenty of vendors on hand including one of my favorites, Koala Clip!

I stayed right on the boardwalk so on race morning I rolled out of bed and was to the start line in less than 15 minutes. Again parking was ample for those staying in the hotel and those driving in for the race.

The race it's is almost 100% flat. We were in a wooded area for a bit then ran through a military base which was pretty cool. The finish was right on the boardwalk in front of the Neptune stature.

Aid stations were able on the course with plenty of Gaterade and water. There were also plenty of beer stations manned by race supporters!

At the finish we were given a ton of cool swag including a bag, hat and fleece blanket. The food was ample as well.

Post race there was a party right on the beach with live bands, beef stew and four drink tickets for Yuenling!!! It was the most fun I've ever had at an after party and I stayed for five hours!

I would hands down recommend this race to anyone that loves running 13.1 miles and having a good time. I'll definitely be back!
