First marathon so it was a struggle. Leading up to the event I was limited on how many miles I was allowed to run due to Achilles tendinitis.

Was VERY wet...rained pretty much the entire race. Had issues with cramping in my right calf during the first 13. Had severe pains in my feet from the beginning of the race.

Event comments:

I give it Average because I thought it was was more lonely on the course than anything else. Really out in the middle of nowhere.
