The one thing I associate with Coeur D’Alene is the video footage from the Ironman race there - great scenery, pretty flat landscape and a ton of spectators.

Seems the spectators only come for the Ironman, the town was totally deserted.

The marathon, in it’s 30th (?) year, is a two loop course, partly on an asphalt trail, partly on the side of a road. It features some scenery, but mainly a huge hill, both up and down, with you have to run twice. In short, it pretty much sucked.

At least I got a photo out of it with me smiling when crossing the finish line.
