Great...If anything I will be walking the first half since it is all up hill. I might run down to the finish from the top of the hill in Patterson Park.
I was just reading your post about Carrabbas (Not sure if that is the right way to spell it). I love that restaurant. I've had excellent experience eating there as well.
Do you live in Baltimore? I actually, only live about 8 blocks from where to race starts so really I have no excuses not being there. I ran it in '06 but wasn't in town last year. I had a great time eating after running that was the best reward...donuts! If you live around Baltimore, I have a few haunts that I can tell you about.
