I am done the marathon! It was NOT the race I expected. I had the worst stomach pain I have had in my entire life and it lasted only 24 miles out of the 26.2. I finished it with a few little walk breaks to drink water or attempt to make myself vomit to feel better 😉
It was an incredible experience and though I kind of want to forget about 94% of it, I had an amazing friend running with me and finished in under 4 hours. If you knew how bad I felt, this time is amazing 😉 My legs felt great, I had NO recurring injury soreness and didn’t even feel my glute muscles getting sore. I know for a fact I could have raced better without the whole feeling-like-death-or-like-an-alien-was-trying-to-crawl-out-of-my-insides thing. I trained my butt off and I look forward to racing faster in the future but I am happy with my results!
