Baltimore was awesome!! Yes, some runners complain about the hills, but the hills could be much worse. The first few miles are hilly/challenging, and some hilly miles towards the end, but it's not anything a marathoner can't tackle.
I loved the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore. There were so many neat shops and places to eat along with street performers. I really enjoyed the spectators along the marathon course. They had a lot of Baltimore Pride especially after all of the riots this year (2015).
My friend Jessie and I and Jessie's sister, Liana, stayed in Baltimore together. We had a great time exploring, eating, and drinking our way through Baltimore.
And...that's a wrap for 2015! Have a great holiday season everyone and I'll be back with marathon fun in 2016!
