Dont have official results yet, but pretty sure this is dead on. Great course...although too many twists & turns for me. More flat 1st half than 2nd....but maybe I just noticed it more on dead legs. My quads started to ache around mile 9. I was worried about my hamstring, but the quads dealth the death blow on this one. By mile 13 I so wanted to be done. I'm happy that I managed to push through & I never stopped once, although I really wanted to. I started questioning why I run marathons towards mile 19 because I was not enjoying it one bit. Probably because my last 2 marathons I had no expectations & ran for enjoyment. I wanted to maintain a 9:00 pace for first half & then slowly increase. I did manage to get my overall pace to an 8:57 ...but totally lost it in the end. As I saw my pace creep to 9:01 I knew I wouldn't BQ. I missed that by 3 minutes. I can't be too upset though, since I did run Boston once. I may just have to be happy with that. My last mile was my slowest....felt like I was crawling...9:30 pace. Cool ending though...we finished inside the stadium & got to hear our names announced. This is a PR for me, so if Boston hadn't changed their standards...I would've made it again. Couple highlights: had to pee really bad so was happy we ran on a bike trail! Lost 1 minute jumping in the woods! My husband signed up for the 5k at last minute & did really well. Was able to hook up with Patty & Lorie at the end. Patty missed her BQ by 50 sec....When I came home I couldn't bend over to take my shoes off! Husband obliged. My left foot was very bloody...I knew something didn't feel good! Slept for an hour & I've tried to eat, but stomach is saying "no". Oh yeah...I forgot my MUSIC! What the heck was I thinking?! Only myself & negatives thoughts to pull me through! So happy to that everyone had good races this weekend! Yay for DM'rs!
