This was my very first full marathon. I love the course because of all the turns. Helps breaking up the mileage but starting and ending in different areas is inconvenient. At the expo you have to pay to park which is ridiculous. My kids and got yelled at, at the expo for going thru an open door and we had to go thru a door right next to it that lead to the same area. Stupid. Then the expo booth area was confusing and we couldn’t find the exit. My husband had a rough time parking since he dropped me off and we had to walk forever to get to our car after the race which was brutal on my body. I’m not sure if ill be running this one again. I just did it to get the beach medal.
