Marathon #2 a success! Thank goodness for cloud cover! This could have been brutal if the sun was out the whole time. I was happy with this whole race. I felt prepared and kept my pace for the first 19 miles. The sun on the long highway got me a bit but I knew I was still going to be sub 4 hours. I really booked it the last mile. I wish I knew what that pace was :) Since I use a watch only mile paces and my actual milage are a mystery. I am sure I added some distance with the weaving I did with the half marathoners. Overall I improved by 15 min.

    Hi Heather, great finish. The sun really made a difference on miles 19 to 23. I clocked 26.5 on my watch but I know I started in the back of the pack.
