Marine Corps Marathon 26.2 mi 04:17 09:48 pace

My first marathon completed! I was on pace to finish under 4hours but my PF on both of my feet started acting up at mile 14. I had pain on my heel and burning sensation on both feet for the rest of the race. The last 4.2 miles felt like eternity but it is done!
Congrats to all the other DM friends that ran the race today!

    Now take the time to address the PF even if that means a total break from running. It can be run-career ending if you let it get bad -- I have friends who had it 2+ years. ART (active release therapy) was their salvation.
