Pre-race routine:

Had my waffles from the waffle house (instead of my usual pancakes!) But drove down to Nashville, parked and got out and walked to the start line, and stretched it all out!
  • 4h 03m 11s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 09m 17s  min/mile

Felt good for the first half plus, then started to get a bit slower and my walking stops were more and more. Also had a chaff on my achilles tendon from my compression, but was just annoying more than anything. Hit the wall at 20, so gotta work on that for next year!
What would you do differently?:

Run more longer, only got in a 17 miler before this race, so 26.2 was a stretch. But longer runs in the future!

Event comments:

This was a great first marathon, so good, I signed up for next year's race too! The discount helped, but I KNOW I can go sub-4 hour next year!
