what it is. To me, its the best experience in running. Two days of fun capped off with a 26.2 mile run.
Great run all. Everyone ran as well as their bodies would allow which, is all that can be asked for.
I figure that the best I can do now is 2:47 or so since that is what I seem to run in my most recent marathons. The endurance is there but thats it. Speed work is needed.
Felt great today and simply ran the same speed more or less the entire race. The hills were fine and the crowds, awesome. Body never felt stressed.
You guys who PR'd are awesome. All of the speedwork and hard long runs have paid off.
I love this race for so many reasons.
I had a blast. After the race, my hammy was really spazzing so some lady with a WICKED strong Boston accent put me in a wheelchair and brought me to the massage tent. WICKED good service.
After that I walked 3 miles back to my house in Cambridge where I soaked in an epsom salt bath to relax the muscles. Felt great after. upon leaving the bath of glory I went to visit Klim and Co and then came home(where I am now). Presently cooking a real good dinner and having a glass of vino and just loving life. My moma bought me organic food and magic potions to speed up recovery and she has been a real support and kind soul, which always helps.
congrats to all and be proud!
PS. Murphy, the massge guy called and asked if noon will work. Let me know if that works on your end.
