I came into this race with PF, had an 8 mile run as my longest run prior to the race, was going to be slow. Planned run walk strategy. Pain in heal kicked up after the first 8 miles making the rest of the marathon kind of painful and slow going. Still did run walk, just much slower. Managed the pain, got er done.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed food drove home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Right knee muscle issue, PF in left foot. This impacted training and race performance. Made it to the finish line at predicted paces taking these things into consideration.

Event comments:

Solid race, best of the 3 courses I have run at Santa Rosa. I will be back, hopefully without injury this time.
