"Did well for most of the first half of the marathon. Right knee started stiffing up on me around the 12th mile and started becoming dehydrated around the 18th mile, but was determined to finish. Disappointed with my overall results, but pleased with the experience."
"It was a great experience for my First Marathon, I enjoyed all the race. I'm glad I didn't see the famous wall but I slowed down a little after mile 23 worried for her to show up & I was able to speed up the last 2 miles. "
"Phenomenal Race. Best organized race I have ever done. Great crowd support and volunteers. I felt great for the first 18 miles and then really struggled. My foot was injured and I had just recovered from the flu. Due to injury and illness I Had not run since Dec. 21. I did cross train until I was hit with the flu. I am just grateful I finished the race, and I am feeling pretty good today. Thanks Run Coach for all your support! "
"Geat Weather, good pace through the Half-M (8:37)but faded through the second. Did not spot running despite pounding pain from the running. My aerobic was fine, it was the wear and tear. Consumed alot of Eundurolytes!"
"Up until the 18 mile marker thought I did great...by the time I got to 21-22 knew I was in trouble (oh the quads). All in all I enjoyed the experience, my 6th marathon...62 year old hippie doing another marathon. Lost 20 plus pounds during training, and 6 inches off my waist, BP normal, raised lots of money for a charity... who can complain?
