I was thinking of choosing the Chicago Women's Half Marathon as my first half on June 23. Last year was the inaugural event and I was wondering if anyone ran it? If so, thoughts on course, crowd, etc?

I've done a couple of Chicago 5Ks and a few were poorly organized with way too many people on the course while others were amazing.
