Let's Go With Plan C

3:23:57
Exactly five minutes slower than last year.
The short version:
  • A 1/2 marathon PR, which probably should've been saved for a 1/2 marathon.
  • A high blood sugar reading at mile 20 (yes - I stopped to test once I realized Boston would have to wait)
  • A wicked cross-head wind from miles 7-12 which helped to seal my fate.
There's a lot I did wrong in this one, but here's the one thing I did right: making my C goal be to finish. Without that, I'm not sure I would've. So many lessons to learn that I can't say I'm overly bummed, though I'm obviously a bit disappointed. A longer report tomorrow. For now, I'm a little obsessed with figuring out how I'll make it up the steps to bed. :)

  1. Sorry you didn't make your 'a' goal, but congratulations on the race. Sounds like you did the right thing by testing and heeding the results. You'll get that BQ soon enough!

  2. Marcus, you ran and trained like a hero. Instead of playing conservative you ran after a more challenging time. While you can debate this, at least you went for it. Congrats
