The course was incredibly flat around the woodlands mall area. There was a lot of wooded area, and a lot of long straight stretches where the runners had a full lane and shoulder and cars had the other lane. There was very little car traffic backed up.
Aid stations were setup every mile and they had some incentive to be happy. None of the live music of austin but a nice setup all the same. Some of the early aid stations were slightly behind on filling cups, but over all it was very good. There were 2 cliff gell stations along the route.
The full course is a 2 loop of the half course so at my pace I got to see several of the full runners pass startign at mile 7.
