Hey Warriors! Happy Marathon Day!! Finished the Hottest. Marathon. Ever. (for me at least......). Was hoping to hit 4:30, but knew, due to my really extreme lack of LR's that was probably a pipe dream. Yeah...................... it was. This WAS my first run longer than 1/2 M length since Goofy 2011. Slacker I am. Finished in 4:57, which I am actually really pleased with. I had a SEVERE bout of GI upset around mile 24ish which really slowed me down for a bit and my feet were just painful as hell for the second half. I stuck with the 4:30 pace group for the first half and then they slowly faded off into the distance (not unexpectedly.....). All in all a fun, but physically uncomfortable day. I've pretty much decided to close the book on Full marathons. They just tend to be too physically demanding on these old (yet fun filled!!) bones. Also means that today I laid to rest the silly idea of ever doing a full IM. I think I'm just going to stick to half's there too......... But the GOOD point is that I can now do all my events with my Lovely Luscious Bride :-D........... Because there is NO WAY in Holy Hand Grenades she will EVER do a full................ Now. Off to catch a few Z's before dinner at Sci-Fi tonight! Have fun Warriors! Hopefully the days find you healthy and happy!
