I met up with my good friend Billy yesterday to finish the course preview that we’ve been working on for a while. If you missed the other parts of the course preview you can find them here. Miles 6.2 to Mile 14, Mile 14 to Mile 20, Mile 20 to Mile 26.2.
This is pretty much hands down no questions asked the hardest part of the course. There are quite a few hills and it’s pretty tiring, but it’s also still at the beginning of the course, so I realize that I would still be feeling fresh and I’d rather this more bland part of the course be at the beginning than at the end. Now that I’ve ran the whole course, I’m really looking forward to the end of the race. I know what’s coming and I’m excited to have run the course and I think it will benefit me a lot.
We started off seeing this street randomly and had to take a picture! Marathon Street right off Sunset Blvd where the marathon route goes.
The first mile is actually inside Dodger Stadium, but since the Dodgers are incredibly lame, and I look like a troublemaker, they wouldn’t let us in to take the picture or run that part of the course. Boo-hoo. Oh well,
