Holy shitballs, that was hard!
I was right on pace for 3:55 through mile 19, and then my legs just hurt soooo badly!
20-26.2 were kind of a nightmare of walking, running, hurting, stopping to stretch, dumping water over my head, and just not caring about my time anymore. I even considered quitting at several points.
Somehow I slogged on and then ran the entire last mile and 0.2 to cross the line in 4:08:30.
I’m like 1% disappointed and 99% ecstatic to have finished and PR’d!
Pics and full recap to come. Now, FOOD.
