Race Recap In Pictures

Usually I would have something to write about, but this time I don’t have much to say. In all honesty my laptop broke after the marathon and I notice after a few days past the event I get writers block. Instead I would like to list 10 thoughts I have about this race and just leave it at that. 

1. This Marathon had the best spectators of all the marathons I have ever ran so far. 

2. At the last mile of my marathon the thoughts came through my head…God In Heart, God In Soul, God In Spirit…and I just chanted this to the finish. 

3. I read 3 race recaps before running this race and it helped me tremendously become an actual finisher. Find them here, here and here.

4. I think traveling is just as exciting as running the marathon, but running a marathon makes traveling worth the experience.

5. Although traveling greyhound makes these races affordable, I had to keep my guard up! 

6. This race was fast, but slow. In other words runners passed me very fast the whole way through, while I ran slowly. 

7. At one point of the race I felt like I was flying. 

8. Mile 25 felt like more that just one mile. 

9. My Garmin did not pick up a signal. 

10. I did not pace myself until the last 7 or so miles. I just ran free, and that was fun. 

Finish time 4:24

      This race was so exciting at times I ran inconstantly until towards the end, with crowds cheering you can’t help but want to run faster!

      Well everyone has their own definition of fun…I would say I am a gluten for punishment so torturing myself for 26.2 miles is my kind of fun…I do want to get better at it though lol

      Yes! You are so right! But I would rather not get into the gross detail…and the negativity….so post will not go up lol !

      So true…if you call an average pace of 10:00 per mile running…for some that would be a very fast walk…anything is possible, just believe in yourself.

    Great race! You’re well on your way to the 50 state list now. Very cool.

    You should think about the Hatfield/McCoy marathon. it covers either West Virginia or Kentucky but it’s a tough, beautiful course. Summer marathon, it was my first back in 2009.
