Event comments:

The volunteer support and the fan support was great. The aid stations were well stocked and a ton of volunteers at each station. The only thing I didn't like about the race was that there were a few very sharp turns, and 180s you had to do. But, overall, a fantastic race. The medals were really nice.

I signed up for Ironman Frankfurt, next year July - and I am very excited about it. I originally planned to run my first Marathon in the middle of September, but am not sure if this is wise.
