@imtdmm Thank you again!
4:45:50 was official 26.36 😉. Happy that I finished considering I could not run a month ago.Hitting 20 miles under 3hrs during training before the ITBand issues makes me wonder what could have been, but that's part of the journey. So I went in yesterday shooting for 4:55:00, and hit under my projected mark. Nonetheless, I think I ran a smart race. Lost some training and focus, but certainly got stronger from the process. Learned a lot about the race itself, the time you put in to get there, and a little more about myself along the way. Had some crazy muscle twitches and wanna be cramps set in around 22. Wicked! Seriously wicked twitches! Mad props to the PT crew after the race. Mad props to the local law enforcement making those intersections safe. Mad props to all the participants, volunteers and gallaries...some serious inspiration out there!
Ran for my wife @mama_rawson and our life together, ran for my health and well-being, ran for our kids #reallyrawson and ran for those who could not.
Oh, and I purchased a Garmin at the expo....49,683 steps yesterday, 29.19 miles total.
You run the day or the day runs you.
