Review of San Diego Half Marathon by Jim Wenzell

Posted by: on March, 28 2012

A great event! The course was mostly flat, though the climb up Washington had me in pain! It was well organized for the most part. The only negative was trying to check my gear before the race. I was told it would be by my wave (1), but I had to walk around for a while before I found it; the volunteers didn’t know where it was, either, and I saw others asking as well. Other than that, this was such a fun race. Running down 6th and seeing the stadium in the distance was very cool and running through the tunnel and into the stadium was an amazing experience! They even piped in crowd noise so it sounded like we were running into a full stadium. I hope to run this every year. HIghly recommended!
