"With the help of Run Coach, I was able to PR by nearly 20 minutes and finally get my BQ time! Despite the weather conditions, I had confidence in my training and stuck to my plan. Great race overall!"
"what an experience--my first; was so nervous about the start--non-event there. The horrible thing that happened was around mile 5 I realized all but one of my gels on my belt had fallen off -- had two in the back though and found one somewhere on the course that I saved til m22 in case it was tainted and scored one from the medics. Gotta carry them different next time. Did I just say next"
Perhaps my best marathon in terms of pacing. Ran the two halves within a minute 1:44:45 and second in 1:45:24. Felt pretty good till mile 21, and only slowed down in last two miles (but a BQ goal kept me going). It was warm (60's) and humid with the rain being welcome to cool down, though the road was slick. The course is flat and fast.
