Good run. Well staffed. Will definately add it to my annual run list.
What would you do differently?:

My pace was too slow. Had plenty left in the Gas tank at the finish. Was my first half marathon in a while. I probably could have ran it in under 1:35

Warm down:

Ran/walked for 1/2 mile. Stretched 10 minutes.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

First Half-marathon in a while. Started too slow. Mental.

Event comments:

Good race. Well staffed. No fuss on race day at packet pick-up. Ample parking. Crowded start but the course is fast, and as flat as it gets in N Ga but not boring. Great race for a PR shot if you get close to the starting line.
