      It's really unfortunate about the cramping problem. Do you think it was just the extra tough hills or did you not hydrate/fuel enough during the race? Regardless, yes you rightfully should be proud and without regrets. A sub 4:30 hr finish for a 1st marathon is amazing! Congrats man!

      Congratulations on your finish!

      It's impressive that you were able to keep pushing when you haven't had cramping before.

      Hope your recovery is swift!

      Good Luck:

      You can always program the Garmin for pace alerts. It will happily annoy you, plus everyone around you, if you stray from plan. But I think it takes away some of the fun and spontaneity from race day. Don't worry. You'll be fine!

      Cool! Just goes to show how much of a "bad run" we bring with us. A change in mood, and we find the flow again.

      I love trying not to startle deer. You've got to wonder what they think of us, tho!

      David, wanted to continue as 'friends' so sent a request to David R. Congrats on the fund raising, although it's not quite what you were aiming for, it's still great and you might get a last minute surge. And good luck on the race too.

      Thanks, Jim! Any money raised is a success in my book. It's been a great experience thus far and Ive learned a great deal about the process of raising money. Perhaps with some more advanced planning I can raise even more next year.

      I know how you feel. I tried to do a fund-raiser on a bike trip across the USA. Mostly frustrating because I couldn't get any support from the people I was raising the money for. Only raised about $2000, but my family was grateful (it was for a memorial scholarship). The hardest part is being happy with what you raised, and not bitter about what you could have raised. A hard lesson for me. Anyway, have a great race, and look forward to following you this winter.

      Surprised you are only doing one... our plan had us do 3+ with the longest being 23. We did an 18, 20, 22 and 23... not it is down hill until the big day!! Feeling ready! Good luck! Your pace is awesome!!

      Cammie - I think I misspoke. I did a 20 a few weeks ago, but this was the only run above twenty. I was surprised the Hal Higdon's program only had two 20 mile runs. That's why I bumped this one up to 22.
