Event comments:

what a day....lets see where do I phone shut itself off in the middle of the night. So I woke up 30 minutes late. I forgot my fuel belt on the table. And my water bottle for the ride up, in the fridge. I got the baltimore at 730 (race started at 8) and there was NO WHERE TO PARK!! So after driving around for 24.5 minutes I found a place and RAN to the start. I started almost dead last. I passed a ton of people and caught up to Coment (hayle) at the 4:30 Pace Group area about 4 miles into it. We did great for anther 4-5 miles then I started to hurt. I walked through mile 10 water stop and only ran a few times there after. My right knee is killing me still today. Butch said it is my IT band....i was hoping it wasn't. Walking is tough, sitting and or resting is fine. It only really hurts when I put weight on it. So....we will see how the rest of the week turns out.

There were areas of the race where the course was noot very well marked. At one point there were a few runner in front of us who went off the course and the cops had to redirect them

A feew areas we ran thru the ghetto. and the course was hilly with LOTS of turns.

Wow.  Great Race. Especially considering you ran a marathon 6 days earlier.  Craziness, for sure!
