    Pretty good - tummy troubles brought me down and slowed me up but I did it!

    Rock 'n' Roll San Diego 2011 Half Marathon

    I'm upset, I had a sub 2:20 pace (I calculated around a 2:18:00) but a few hundred yards after the mile 12 marker my soleus completely lost it and I fell to the pavement. Luckily, two people helped me up to the edge of the race or I would have been sitting there for a while. Medical comes over and they were super helpful, they told me how many miles I had left, assessed me and everything. And I did lunges the rest of the 1.3 miles, every step I could feel my leg just wanted to give out. I'm sure the finishing photos are something to laugh at, I can't wait. I went to medical after the race, they wrapped my leg in ice.. Started hyperventilating, what a treat. :) After about an hour of that, slowly made my way home. I think I'm going to have to start carrying Na+ or K+ pills and stretch at mile 10. Anyway, still in high hopes, I beat my San Diego 2010 time by an hour and I'm officially a 2:30 runner (second time getting it). The bus route this time was so much better, last year was terrible, I overheard six people passed out, only waited 10 minutes for a bus this time.

    SD RnR marathon #4. The course was a little better this year. Less Fiesta Island. Although miles 16-18 were a rough out and back. Great weather again, well planned event. Traffic on the freeway was INSANE! Good thing I know my way around here, yet still it was a bit of a panic moment. I missed my corral start but still managed to run to and make it out with corral 6. My best time out of the 4 so I'm thrilled. My son and wife enjoyed the really very much. Well done. Run it.

    2011 San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon

    Incredibly fun event! If all the Rock and Roll marathons are like this, I'll definitely be doing more! Live bands every 2-3 miles, water every 1-2 miles, tons of enthusiastic spectators.

    Everything went well until about mile 18, up to which I was trying to stay between 8:45-9:00 minute miles. There was a long gentle uphill between mile 15-17. At the top I stopped to stretch, and my calves got completely cramped up. After that it was pretty much walk/jog until mile 25. I definitely didn't do as well as I'd hoped, but I learned a lot of lessons, most notably, get more than 7 hours sleep the two nights before a marathon!
