Performance: Good
Course: They don't call it Hospital HILL Run for nothing. Several big hills on the course. Also several short but steep hills. The finish was nice as it was all downhill the last mile. All on closed city streets with lots of police and volunteers. There were at least 5 live bands playing along and course.
