I had some serious stomach discomfort before the start - I seriously thought I was going to hurl. But fortunately I got a good burp in with about 15 seconds before the gun went off and never had any real issues during the run.

Never really felt great during the run. Could have done better for sure. Especially if I actually trained!! And a hard bike yesterday sure didn't help things.
