    Alright, I'm spamming you now. I though I was pretty cool at this juncture of the marathon. Turns out I wasn't cool at all.

    I'm that studly looking guy on the left. I actually look like a runner in this photo. In case you were wondering (and I'm sure you were), that guy on the right beat me by over an hour.

    That's me just a few yards from the finish line. I felt worse than I looked. And I looked bad. If you look closely enough, you can see tears.

      You're a stud no matter what, Trent! You did it and lived to tell about it! Excellent job!

      It could have been worse. The picture could have shown both feet on the ground. This proves you were still running.

      Congratulations on completing. I totally feel your pain. I trained big for Ogden and it was terrible. As a result I have barely run a long run since. I'm so sorry for your disappointment. I hope you can pull it together quicker than I did. On the flip side are you walking normal again yet? That course is a beast!!

    great Rectangles 10.05 mi 01:32 09:10 pace

    Figured out a 10-mile route and took it easy. Didn't look at my watch until the end. Heat got me a bit the last half. It was mid-80s. Feeling confident about next week.

      Ha, totally agree with you. It's not like it's going to be that easy. A course with that much downhill will certainly present whole new challenges that a flat course or one with rolling hills won't.

      A BQ is a BQ! And the most sore I've EVER been after a race was at the Bryce Canyon half, which was an extreme downhill. It tears up your quads and knees! Good luck!

      Thanks guys. I'll evaluate how I feel at 15 miles. When I ran it in training I was well ahead of bq pace but my legs had taken a downhill pounding so I spent the last two months with core and leg strength.

      I wouldn't be doing more than 14-18 at this point. I'd recommend doing 14 to 18 miles total with the last 6 to 8 miles at goal marathon pace. And then the weekend after doing 12 miles total with the last 6 miles at goal marathon pace. For both of these efforts I'd be trying to match the actual marathon course as closely as possible too! (match the course profile of your marathon)!

      Two have said do 20; Two have said don't do 20. Still not sure. Maybe I should ask the Internet. It knows all. I actually like Ken's comment below. That's kind of what I was thinking.

      I would not arrive to 20 miles, I would do 18 and the last weekend before the marathon week a 8 miles run, and don't think about pace, you'll run faster than you think the marathon day.

      So its a good thing you didn't sign up for a Fall marathon...still summer in 16days - anyway- - ah snap - not moving my comment to your question above - since you only have one 20, think back to how you felt after it and gauge from there. Really plan on only 15 and if you feel comfortable squeeze in a few more
