Course was very residential which I thought would translate to no one on the course but that was far from the truth. The community really came out and supported the runners which was awesome! Lots of roads were closed but the cops were manning all intersections.. felt very safe! Families, sherpas and just local residents cheered on the runners. It really was awesome. Favorite was a couple sitting in lawn chairs ringing a liberty bell within the first two miles (i.e. 7:30 am on a Sunday!). That is dedication and hopefully their neighbors are still talking to them!
At mile 11 there were these random signs that said 11.1,11.2,11.3. I don't know why they were there as they only lasted for a half mile but they were annoying esp b/c they didn't continue. As soon as I accepted I would be seeing the 1/10 miles slowly ticking along and worked them into my walk/run pace, they disappeared.. i am not sure who put them there but i didn't need them! Finish was at the football stadium and you hit mile 13 with about a half of lap to go. I am pretty sure that was the longest .1 I have run but very happy to see the finish line and chased down 2 girls on the track. Finished right in my happy time (2:30 +/- 3 minutes)
