"Age 70. First marathon... and last. Missed my target time, but I finished and I wasn't last. Going really well 1st 15 miles, about 50 seconds/mile ahead of target. Then left thigh started to tighten, followed by pain in left knee. Had to walk a lot in final third of race. finished running with severe knee pain."
"First half marathon! Course was smooth and only a little hilly. It was much hotter then expected. I felt amazing until mile 8 when I didn't have much left in the tank. My second wind never came, but considering how under trained I was I'm still happy with my finish."
