Ran well till 20 mile mark, had some cool social time with some of the other runners. (Nice to Meet everyone)
Wheels starting coming off after 20, I won't bore everyone with the details.
We all have our final 6 horror stories.
The only thing that seemed to work and get me thru was run 3 minutes walk one from about 22-25
The final push, rubber legged, weaving finish around that last turn was probably fun to watch.
What would you do differently?:
Stick to a whole training program, I would have been a little stronger at the finish.
Medical tent ice for my various aches and pain. Very nice red cross volunteers
What limited your ability to perform faster:
lack of training
I am gonna give it four because in only it's second year.
The course and people running it are the stars very friendly runners out for a fun race.
The two negatives departure from race site was chaotic,and could we please have bigger cups by the end of the race I was having to drink 4 cups for minimal fluid.
