Run went well, I hadnt run since the Baltimore Half-Marathon the week before so I didnt know how my legs would feel about running. I was hoping to go under 2 hours, which I did, which made me happy. Thought I would have to push harder to get there so Im pleased with the results. I negative split the llast 5 miles so Im happy about that as well. I would rather do that than start of fast and just hope I finish.
What would you do differently?:

Just train more on the run. Im starting to like running a bit more, but I need to force myslef to get out there and train more.

Warm down:

Walked around and grabbed some food, drinks from the hooah tents. Walked back to Metro then to the car and home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

The soldiers were great at the water stops. Plenty of water for everyone 10x over. navigating the water stops was a bit tricky as people started hanging out and coming to complete stops after the first water station.

Navigating the course towards teh end was tricky too as I came upon several huge groups of walkers taking the entire course. I just wish people would run/walk like they should drive. Slower traffic to the right! Once people put down their entry fee I think they feel entitled to walk wherever they please. This is coming from someone who barely cracked the 12min/mile pace, so you know it had to be bad out there!

Still a great race though! Plan on lowering my time next year!
