great Carlsbad Marathon - San Diego 26.2 mi 04:40 10:41 pace

I was actually holding an 8:45 pace until about mile 17 when everything fell apart. Mentally, speaking, I hit the wall. Mile 17 is where the marathoners continued down a straight stretch and the half-marathoners turned for their home stretch. Knowing they were headed back and I still had to run another mile out and back before I was on my final 6 was crushing. Plus the hills were getting to me. Between miles 17 and 22 - I ended up walking quite a bit trying to pep talk myself in to finishing this 'stupid' race. It ruined my PR but I still finished. I'll take an 8:45 pace for 17 miles, I'll take it.
