Review of San Francisco Marathon by The Bear

Posted by: on August, 2 2012

Once again, an I had an awesome time. What a great place for a marathon, and I love a challenge. The course is kind of hilly (and least that is what my friend complained about), but it could be worse. I was ready for the hills.
The expo was a little better than last year.
The course has plenty of support.
The medal is awesome.
Running over the Golden Gate bridge and through GG park is like nothing else.
The only issue I had was there were not very many pace groups. I was in corral 3 and there was only a 3:40 pace group. I usually hang with the 3:30 group, which was in the next corral. Of course as luck has it my Garmin stopped working that day, so I had no idea what pace I was going.
Will do again, but hopefully with a good Garmin.
