Yesterday I posted the picture of my race results. I had signed up for that racing thinking it was certified at that distance. Even though I had no intentions of trying to Boston qualify, I wanted the right distance. During the race I began to realize that the course was not accurately marked when my watch was splitting almost a mile more then the mile markers. The splits started getting further apart. At the turnaround my watch had split almost 2 miles more then it was supposed to be at 13.1. The people on the course confirmed that it was super long. I knew I needed to back off because it was getting hot out and since it was a poorly run race there weren’t a lot of aid stations. I was actually on pace and feeling great to run the 3:50 I had intended on running.
I’m disappointed I wasn’t able to PR in the marathon because I know I probably would have but I realize there is nothing I can do about it and I’m embracing the fact that I ran a solid almost 30 miles yesterday. I think it’s safe to say that the 50k will be ok and I will get through it.
Well, that is all. It’s all good. Pleased with my furthest run ever. Now it’s off the the beach for a week!!!
About ready to leave to go get the race packets and go to the hotel. Race day is soon upon me! Yikes
Fretting over the fact that it is supposed to rain Saturday. I live in the desert. Really? I have no control over the weather but at least when it’s hot I know I can handle it because I trained all summer in the heat. Rain on the other hand, what’s that haha
Just pre ordered my new iphone. I’m a nerd.
