Tulsa Route 66 Marathon, Inc.
55F / 13C
= 2h 33m 50s
Age Group Rank
Drove up the day before with Mary and Chris. Mary was doing her first half with me and Chris was doing the full. On Friday went to my PT and he taped my foot and calf to try and help. It seemed to do ok. No more green Mizuno shoes. White are fine, green are not
(even though they are the same brand style - both are Mizuno Wave Inspire 8s
Got up at 545, got dresses, ate a 1/2 bagel with PB and grabbed a banana and water and went down to grab the shuttle with Mary and Chris. Ate banana on the shuttle, drank some water and gatoraide before getting in the corrale.
2h 33m 50s
11m 44s min/mile
Mary and I started off at a 10:30/mile pace - knew that was too fast for me but wasn't in pain so I went with it. About mile and a half we had a huge mile long hill. It just wore on me. Feet started to hurt about mile 4 and I told Mary to go ahead I would try to keep up but I was starting to hurt
). The uneven surfaces I was told by my dr would not help my feet. Had pain going up hills but not down or not much on flat so I walked the uphills and ran as best I could on the flats. By mile 6.5 my feet were really starting to hurt. So I told myself I would run as much as I could. Which turned into running about 3/4 of a mile and walking the last 1/4 and doing it all over again. That 1/4 of a mile walk helped my feet calm down because by mile 9 my feet were cramping in the arch of my foot
). Hit the aid station at mile 12 and took some shot bloks. Walked to 12.5 and ran the rest of the way in. I was cramped up by the time I crossed the finish line.
What would you do differently?:
Not be injured going into the race. Get the feet/calf problems straightened out.
Mary could barely walk due to knee pain so I helped limp her around. We went to get in line for the massage but hopped out to go watch Chris finish. Came back and got massaged, grabbed the shuttle back to the hotel. Change and then drive 2 hours home.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
The problems with my feet/arches. Dr thought and had been treating a calf problem - which actually had to do with a muscle that runs through/underneath my arch.
I rate it average since as of right now I have only done this race twice. :
