Had trouble with my IT band from the very beginning of the race; wasn't even sure this was going to be a possibility for me. Luckily, I had brought my IT band strap with me. I had never used this before, but decided that I may want to try it since we were running two marathons in two days!! It worked! I had to stay in a certain position; and if I shifted, evenly slightly in either direction, I had a lot of pain. My wonderful husband (who also ran two marathons in two days) had to get my water for me for the first 15 miles! I would have been screwed without him! I kept saying that we would walk when we hit certain miles; but, we actually never did. It was a very slow day for both of us (especially him); but we managed to "run" the entire time and finish our goal of 2 marathons in 2 days!!
