This is an entry in an older hand-written running journal from 2004.
The weather was perfect with a slight breeze and a few scattered clouds that block the direct sun. The temperature was was in the mid-seventies, and the warmth felt great in January.
Some of the major sponsors were Tylenol, Albertson’s, Reebok, Gatorade, UPS, Power Gel, Subway, and Dixie Cup.
The only other half-marathon I can compare it to is the Kona marathon. The Kona course was much more scenic, but the Phoenix weather was ideal.
