Have been plagued with piriformis syndrome. Could not get it under control before the race. So, without a doubt I ran with quite a bit of discomfort. My hopes of qualifying for Boston with a 4:00 marathon went out the door at the half way point. From there on it was jog/walk/hobble to the finish line....UGH!
What would you do differently?:

when injured either bag the race or scale back to a half marathon
Post race
Warm down:
