This was an escort run for my 3 month pregnant wife. The doctor told her this was to be her last run for the remainder of the pregnancy and to keep her HR below 140 so we had to keep things slow and walk towards the end. Stilla good time and great to get down there to check out the cherry blossoms.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Walked back to the car.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing. Still think I couldve gone under 2 hours, but keeping her heart rate down was the big key here.

Event comments:

Tons of food left over. One of the volunteers begged us to take tons of leftover bananas. Ended up filling up our race bags and easily came home with 50 bananas. Looks like a LOT of bananas smoothies this week!
