I was out sick for this race, but my mom still raced it and here is her recap of it. The Myrtle beach mini marathon was  a very well run point to point race. The weather was beautiful, the medal was huge and it was a wonderful sunny day. It was 47 degrees when the race started at 7am, the sun came up in about 30 minutes. It was 58 degrees at the finish line at the beach, which I loved. It was a perfect temperature for  shorts and t shirts. We started running down a closed road and then went to a walking path for a short bit. Then we ran along the ocean for a little while but were a block away for most of that time. The finish line was around a bend so you couldn’t see it until you were right upon it. The course was very flat and I had a great race time. There was water and gatorade every few miles. The after race food was bananas, cookies, bagels, apples, pretzels and beer;  nothing exciting. The bus was there to take us back to the start when I needed it but I personally don’t really like point to point races very much. The host hotel was very nice, but not convenient. I would recommend staying at the finish line and taking a cab to the start. Pros: well run, bling, beautiful weather Cons: not very scenic, point to point, after race food
