My first go at any sort of official run... Very pleased with the results considering I had only been out running 3 times prior to the race!
What would you do differently?:

Run! Now that I am writing this entry after having run a marathon, it's easy to answer this with a million responses. Having the experience would make all the difference in the world (and the preparation of real training).

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training prior to the race, and poor physical condition (not terrible, but considering that I am 25 Lbs lighter now than I was at this race...)

Event comments:

This is a very fun course for beginners just getting into running, and for veterans.. It is very well organized and is just a big party. It may be one of the very things that inspired me to try out a marathon!
