The goal today was to finish and by the grace of God I did! PF and a janky left leg didn’t result in a DNF and I am so THANKFUL for that! Did I totally lag and go slow? Yup! But I learned a lot.
1. Getting up at 3:45 am stinks, but running the first half of a marathon on the water is AWESOME
2. I have weak hammy’s. I have focused on strengthening the rest of my bod and my hammy’s got left behind.
3. Running in hot, windy weather is AWFUL
4. Being hydrated before the race is huge.
5. Me + ipods don’t mix
This was my worst finish yet, so am thankful that time was not a goal. I am still kicking myself for being so lazy, but conservative was the name of game and the good news is I AM PAIN FREE! The bad news? I finished in 4:24- OUCH!
At least I did it with a smile…and 70 SPF. White girl, white girl!
