This was my first marathon, and I would definitely go back but there is certainly room for improvement. The course and city are absolutely gorgeous but make sure you are ready for the hills. There are lots of them and as one who didn't train on hills, it certainly hurt my time.

My only two complaints were the lack of bathrooms and one leg of the course. There were too few port-a-potties at the start and some people ended up using a grove of trees instead of waiting. Also there was only one bathroom at each water station and a line each time I stopped. Running along Monona Terrace was beautiful, but as the path was not closed to the public the runners were forced to dodge walkers and bikers. My full review at
