AND to be CONTINUED! with a race recap.
For the curious- I ran in 3:38:40- NOT my goal time AT ALL- but I finished the marathon, took back my day- and crossed the line I am still processing the factors that slowed me down- but numero uno was that I got HOT HOT HOT in the full sun yesterday. I also had some trouble breathing (either allergies or anxiety, or BOTH)- but I feel good that I only gave up about 10 minutes to those issues and didn’t let the wheels really spin off into the distance.
Thank you to EVERYONE for all of the incredible support, encouraging thoughts, support on the course, love, phone calls, texts- it has meant a lot.
Those that ran yesterday- what were your thoughts?? Anyone else overheating from training in the snow and running in full sun and 67/70 degrees??
