The day I felt ok- my glute had been very sore the week prior and I had a massage- which helped.
I changed my priorities to finishing healthy and having a strong time, but not pushing for a PR as planned. I can not have an injury )
I paced with one of my wonderful Manic Marathon friends to a 317 finish.
Not the time I could race, but satisfied with a top 10 and age group win .
State sub four 46 done .
Marathon number 95 and Sub four State 47 was the next Sunday in Northern Maine.
Sugarloaf resort. It was gorgeous
Pine trees, waterfalls , hills.
Turned to be one of my top 5 marathons as a favorite.
My glute and leg still ached so I was not sure of even finishing -
Raced the first 14 easy. Then my Garmin stopped . Again . No time on the course do no idea my pace. My leg was hurting, but I sucked it up and paced the last 8 miles at a sub 700 pace.
I saw a moose which made my trip and I met some cool new friends.
Goal for UT marathon will be speed !
