Perfect fall day y the DELAWARE river
Sun and no wind
Started the out n back course at a conservative pace. The river was on our right as we started. About 450 runners for the marathon.
Aid stations every 2 miles were great.
I felt good. Kept my pace on track.
I was one min off on my predictions though. Came up to the 20 mile mark and started my move up to 730 pace from 750. Passed the fourth placed lazy then was bearing down on second and third place. Could not catch them by 5 seconds.
Fourth women overall )
