love this route - the half marathon is like sightseeing through some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in atlanta.
OMG! The full marathon had crazy hills and inclines every mile or so. This race was a killer! Def not an effort for beginners or people who have not trained running steep hills! Ouch! Give me a flat Florida marathon! On the flip side, everyone in Georgia was VERY nice and hospitable. A great place to visit and take your family.
Much more organized than last year. Someone took our checked bags BIB #6092 and 6094. I hope it is a genuine mistake and not deliberate stealing. Everyone in Decatur neighborhood was very hospitable and gracious. The signs along the route were excellent and a real booster. There is a need for more volunteers playing music on the route.
