Dee Brandes's thoughts:

Met Kara Goucher and Bart Yasso at the expo and heard them speak.
Swag: long sleeved tech race shirt that was pretty nice and at the finish line we were given a ball cap and a beach towel. The beach towel was a nice touch!
We stayed at a hotel right next to the starting line and got to avoid the pre-race porta potties. The course was very flat with the exception of running on the highway overpass. The biggest obstacle was running on the boardwalk for a couple miles right before the finish. The head wind was very strong and unrelenting. I was happy with this race experience in the end. My husband did the half marathon and had a positive experience too. This was a nice March getaway and we both enjoyed how peaceful the beach was during its offseason. This would be a great family vacation too as there was a big kid's run and an 8k race the day before the marathon and half.
